Is NBC in Legal Trouble Over Ray Romano's Character Name on PARENTHOOD?
According to the U.S. Trademark Office, there are about 250,000 new marks registered each year. Everytime a TV show writer creates a character name, there's a chance of stumbling upon a surname that is not only protected, but has the potential of causing confusion.

For the past few weeks, NBCUniversal has been trading letters with an attorney for Rizzoli Publications, a publishing house that specializes in coffee table books on art, architecture, interior design and, oh yes, photography.

Rizzoli Publications claims that PARENTHOOD has spawned a character that infringes upon its trademark rights to "Rizzoli."

To my delight, these ‘secrets’ translate easily into a woman’s everyday life. I feel strongly that there are certain products that are essential to every beauty regimen. With the help of my friend, professional make-up artist Michael Marcus, I have created a convenient travel-size bag of essentials that is perfect for every woman who wants to improve her appearance and retain a youthful look.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Scott Reeves and Steve Burton join Hurricane Sandy relief efforts
Burton tweeted: "As you know, there are many victims of Sandy and tremendous devastation. A lot of people are still without and will be for months to come. My prayers have been and still are with them. My good friend Linda Rohe @coastalent1 and her neighborhood in East Atlantic Beach, NY is suffering. I'm not there so I don't know the reality of the struggles, only what Linda has told me. If she says it's bad, I know it's worse. Linda has continued to work and has been driving out there to help. I want to help. I want to be there, but due to my schedule I cannot be. A lot of you have been asking, so here's the plan. Gift Cards. I'll be sending gift cards from Costco and Target. We have determined that this is the best way to get them what they need. So if you would like to help, please send a gift card from one of these places, Costco or Target. Linda will not only buy supplies but also give out the cards to those who are in great need. Every little bit helps. Please send gift card if you can."
