Gwyneth Paltrow’s e-commerce website Goop.com has been sued by Charles Platkin, who owns and operates a business under the name Diet Detective.
Charles Platkin alleges that Gwyneth Paltrow’s company infringed on his Diet Detective copyright in a July 18th article posted on its website, which used the phrase as its title.
He is the author of the Diet Detective syndicated column, as well as maintaining a website under that name. He demands that Goop Inc. be barred from using his “Diet Detective” trademarks, and is seeking monetary damages and a jury trial.
Charles Platkin is represented by William R. Samuels of W.R. Samuels Law PLLC.
