    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — When Nas became the first rapper invited to trace his family tree through the PBS series "Finding Your Roots," he welcomed the opportunity.

    Published: Wed, Jul 23, 2014

But the cable channel's sales of T-shirts, hoodies and other apparel bearing that quote violate a trademark owned by Hajn, a Florida company that was already marketing "My Favorite Color is Camo" merchandise, according to CNN. The company claims it registered the trademark and put it on shirts, pants, hoodies, hats, magnets, stickers and bumper stickers in 2011, a year before the "Duck Dynasty" reality series began airing on A&E.

    Published: Wed, Jul 23, 2014

    First Ted Cruz had problems with HBO’s "True Blood," and now Sarah Palin does, too. USA TODAY reports the former Alaska governor told Breitbart News that she rejected an overture from the producers of the vampire show, which on Sunday’s episode featured a scene in which Republicans were killed attending a Ted Cruz fundraiser. “The brilliant minds of True Blood were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman in person instead of just all conservative women in general,” Palin told Breitbart News. “Their offer wasn’t presented in any negative way, perhaps to benefit from a surprise factor after the guest appearance. I turned them down anyway.”

  • 'Sinister Six' spinoff to come next for Spider-Man

    Updated: 22 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Spider-Man franchise will detour next with a "Sinister Six" spinoff in 2016, pushing "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" to 2018, Sony's Columbia Pictures said Wednesday in announcing an updated schedule. By ordering "Sinister Six" ahead of the next "Spider-Man" movie, the studio hopes to expand the franchise with the group of Marvel super-villains. Released in May, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" accumulated $706 million worldwide and only just surpassing $200 million domestically. That was considered a disappointing result, since it failed to top its 2012 predecessor, which made $758 million. It was also less than all of the box-office hauls for Sam Raimi's trilogy.

  • Holmes lawyers question firearms analysis

    Updated: 23 hr ago

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Defense attorneys in the Colorado theater shootings are attacking the reliability of firearms analysis, saying it's subjective and lacks statistics to measure its accuracy. The judge heard testimony Wednesday from a state crime scientist who said he matched bullets and shell casings found at the theater to three weapons, apparently the ones officers seized at the scene. The defense wants firearms testimony barred from the trial. James Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the 2012 attack. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Defense lawyers have acknowledged Holmes was the shooter but continue to challenge any evidence pr
