NYC's Naked Cowboy sues Naked Cowgirl
Time Square icon goes to court over trademark
NEW YORK, NY - It's not exactly the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.
Robert Burck says Sandy Kane is damaging the brand he built through more than a decade of strumming his guitar wearing only briefs and a cowboy hat.
Kane, whose real name is Sandra Brodsky, wears a bikini, cowboy hat and guitar in her role as the Naked Cowgirl.
The federal suit, filed Wednesday, asks that the court keep Kane from doing anything that would violate Burck's trademark.
Kane's attorney Nicholas Barnhorst says he hasn't seen the suit but that Kane has the right to do what she's doing.
