Kid Rock Sued By Circus In Trademark Beef

Billboard Magazine reports:

Kid Rock is in legal hot water for using the phrase “The Greatest Show on Earth” without permission from its trademark owners.

The phrase belongs to Feld Entertainment, longtime owners of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which took the touring extravaganza off the road earlier this year, but retained all intellectual property for the circus including its famous trademarked tagline “The Greatest Show on Earth.”

Now Feld is suing both Kid Rock and Live Nation in Federal court in Florida, arguing that the singer did not ask permission when using the tagline to promote his 2018 “Greatest Show on Earth” arena tour, which begins January in Nashville.
