Porn Dude -- Clear Your Throat, Or Else!

2/11/2009 1:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

deep throatLinda Lovelace would have been proud to know the word "throat" is firmly planted in hers.

The man who owns the rights to legend-harry "Deep Throat" has fired off a cease and desist letter to Vivid Entertainment, claiming Vivid's remake "Throat: A Cautionary Tale" violates his legal rights to the name.

"D.T." owner Ray Pistol claims in his letter to Vivid he's cornered the famous title by getting a federally registered Trademark. He also claims Vivid broke a deal he had with the company re: the name.

Note to Mr. Pistol -- Why no complaints about other pornos like "Throat Gaggers," "Throat Sluts," and "Throat Chokers"... or the behind the scenes TV show about the remake called "Deeper Throat"?

While Titles can Not be trademarked themself...they can and are copyrighted so any reproduction or useage other than fare useage is by agreements.All production for profit companies are trademarked so what is your point?.Still pictures can be trademarked and any use of studio on film persona`s is only under contract agreements.The cheap ass way to Trademark and copyright at the same movement is by still picture and I own a few personas that way.No one can steal from you because you are NOT for hire and your picture becomes one of your trademarks as all photogs know as well do painters.You don`t have to spend much to protect your arts BUT online and overseas markets where they can kill you off and get away with it.Fulltime seach motors still can`t stop them from stealing you bind.Copyright it stick it in a bank safe box and wait to do battle or sell it off.Nothing in hollywood is owned by the artistes.Only studio arthouse have real art for sale!.
