    It is interesting that Lindsay Lohan is investing her energy in a lawsuit against ETrade for the use of the name “Lindsay.” While celebrities should certainly enjoy protection over the use of their image, or even their persona, a reference to a “milkaholic” baby conveniently named “Lindsay” seems too far of a stretch, particularly considering the commonality of the name. Unlike Bono or Cher, Lindsay Lohan does not have single name recognition, as the link above highlights. Even if the case is not thrown out purely on its ridiculous nature, “parody” or “satire” will most likely be shown under the factors of Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music.
