The Situation

Slams His Tanned Foot Down

On GTL Rip-off

The Situation had himself a situation -- someone was using his trademarked GTL phrase without permission -- so he had his lawyers make the copycat web site disappear.

The site in question was called MyGTLFuel.com -- which claims to "manufacture products to energize and enhance your lifestyle."

The Sitch and his brother/business partner, Marc Sorrentino, felt it came too close to their GTL trademarks -- so they had their lawyers draw up a cease and desist letter.

The letter worked and the site is down -- though a Facebook page still remains. The Sorrentino boys still want the bogus site to fork over any profits they made off the GTL trademark and are currently working towards a resolution.

If they don't reach an agreement ... we're told the Sorrentinos will file suit.

I'm going to trademark the entire alphabet and sue everyone who uses any of my letters.

Starting with "The Situation"

should spend less time on G.T.L. and spend more time G.A.L. - Getting a life.
