Kate Middleton’s Tattoo Causes Confusion In Edinburgh
KATE Middleton has a tattoo. No, no that Kate Middleton – another one. Do we pity the person whose name is hijacked by a bigger name? Was there an Elvis Presley before there was Elvis Presley. Do John Lennons call themselves by another name when booking hotel rooms in New York? Does Bill CLinton wish that William Jefferson Blythe had not changed his name? Is Sarah Ferguson bitter?
This Kate Middleton has a tattoo on her thigh. The tattoo was not finished when its designer, Karolina Randakova, was sacked by Dragonheart Tattoo UK in Portobello, Edinburgh. Another artist finished it off.
And now Ms Randakova is demanding £832 for copyright infringement.
At Edinburgh sheriff court, her lawyer, Sandy Moffa says:
‘They [the studio] shouldn’t use graphic works in application of tattoos without consent of the author.”
Robert Frazer contests:
“All the defenders did was to complete the tattoos by colouring them in.”
The court has adjourned.
Meanwhile in same name news, the hunt is on for Noel Edmonds, a shadowy Albanian wanted for crimes against humanity…
