DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE FILES FEDERAL LAWSUIT AGAINST RAPPER JAY-Z ALLEDGING TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
By: Bob Ryder
12/3/2005 12:22:44 PM


1WRESTLING.COM has learned that Diamond Dallas Page has filed a federal lawsuit in Los Angeles against rapper Jay-Z alleging trademark infringement for unauthorized use of the "Diamond Cutter" sign that Page has used commercially since 1996.

Page introduced the diamond shaped hand signal while in WCW and has continued without interruption to use it professionally in wrestling and other entertainment related projects. The sign appears on the cover of Page's new book, "Yoga for Regular Guys" and is something Page went to great lengths to brand as the symbol of the "Diamond Cutter" over the past decade.

Jay-Z began using the symbol professionally well after it had been established by Page and has used it on various products for the past few years, including the cover of "The Dynasty: Roc La Famillia 2000" and "Jay-Z - Fade To Black".

Page introduced his "Diamond Cutter" symbol in 1996 while working for WCW on the weekly NITRO and THUNDER programs and also used the symbol on monthly PPV events and other WCW related live events. He also used the symbol during during countless main stream media appearances, including "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno".

We're attempting to contact Diamond Dallas Page for comment on the lawsuit and will also attempt to contact representatives of Jay-Z for their reaction. We'll have a follow up to this story in the next few days.

DDP is a white man in his late 40s. Im pretty sure he doesnt really know who Jay-Z is or even knew he was using that sign. Jay-Z is a rapper, not the fu*king Rolling Stones. This reminds me of when Sony and Flip got sued by Namco for the Pacman sample and people were like "Why sue now". The higher business types, especially people not even in the same industry have no idea whats being done in another range of work.
