Title: Clint Eastwood Wins $2M In Lawsuit Over Fake CBD Endorsement
Post by: LB13 on July 03, 2022, 01:31:43 PM
Excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter:

Clint Eastwood was awarded $2 million in a lawsuit accusing a CBD retailer of stealing his name and likeness to promote its products. The verdict is the second in favor of the actor in a pair of suits against CBD manufacturers and marketers that fabricated news articles and manipulated search results to make it appear that the actor endorsed their products.

?$2 million is a reasonable representation of the fair market value of Mr. Eastwood?s services in lending his influential and known name to a hidden metatag campaign for products he likely would have been unwilling to endorse in the first place,? reads the order issued on June 24.

Good for Clint, I guess.

I mistook Clint Eastwood for waging a CBD war. He's only suing them for exploiting his image in marketing... Nevertheless that's a good thing. Clint doesn't have anything to do with these drugs.
