Bluewater Productions has responded to a cease-and-desist order from Lady GaGa and Justin Bieber.
As reported by Bleeding Cool, attorney Kenneth Feinswog is representing the pair, who have been profiled in Bluewater’s series of unauthorised biographical comics.
“We are 100% within our first amendment rights,” Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis told Newsarama.
“We knew our rights on this before we jumped into the biography world. These are 100% biographies on their lives.
“We reach out to all the celebrities and some choose to work with us and some do not. If they do choose to work with us, we donate ads and money to a non-profit of their choice. We offered the same deal to Bieber’s people.”
Feinswog represented The News Kids on the Block in a suit against Revolutionary Comics in 1990, in which the judge ruled that the unauthorised biographical comic was legal.
The publisher and band later came to a settlement over the use of the New Kids on the Block logo.
The GaGa issue was released in June, with the Bieber comic planned for October.
