ROSA PARKS IS SUING OUTKAST
CNN and MTV report that the US Supreme Court has allowed Rosa Parks to sue Outkast for trademark infringement and defamation.
"Outkast recorded the song Rosa Parks for their 1998 album, Aquemini. The song does not mention Parks by name and is not about her in content. It does feature the refrain, 'Ah, huh, hush that fuss/ Everybody move to the back of the bus.'"
LaFace Records v. Parks, 03-504.
