Aug 1, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Oprah Winfrey has been sued by a New Jersey woman, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog. Simone Kelly-Brown and the motivational communication services company Own Your Power Communications filed a trademark infringement suit alleging that Winfrey stole the motto "Own Your Power" and the acronym “OYP,” the story says.

The plaintiffs are seeking damages to reverse WInfrey and Harpo Studios’ “brazenly unlawful disregard for the existence and use of [OYP’s] trademark," the story says, citing court papers.

A Harpo representative said, “Harpo has not been served and we have no information about what allegations are being made.”
