Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop Slapped with Lawsuit For Trademark Infringement

She’s been steadily building her lifestyle blog for the past few years, however Gwyneth Paltrow seems to have hit a major speed bump on her road to success.

According to a new lawsuit, Hunter College professor Charles Platkin was “grievously injured” when the “Shakespeare in Love” lady stole his trademarked name “The Diet Detective” and used it for her own e-commerce domain.

And though he reached out to Paltrow’s people over the phone and through email, they’re still using The Diet Detective in their weekly web newsletters.

Platkin claims he would have originally settled for an apology, but now that they’re giving him the runaround, he’s out for justice!
