LeBron James' UNINTERRUPTED sends letter to Alabama football over copyright issue

Alabama gets copyright infringement letter from LeBron James 'Uninterrupted' over 'Shop Talk'

LeBron James believes Alabama's football program is offside.

The issue arose last week when the official Twitter account for Alabama football released a trailer for "Shop Talk".

The first episode included Atlanta wideout and former Tide player, Julio Jones, Nick Saban and a host of other talking about their playing days and off-the-field topics.

James' show, "The Shop", which has already released two episodes and reportedly has a third ready to go, features James and friends, business associates and others having open conversations while getting their hair cut in a barber shop.

In the meantime, there's still Atlanta-which could always do a Taylor Swift-themed episode of its own. But we definitely wanted to give " Rick and Morty " a run for their money and I think we would have.

'Ready Player One' recaptures that old Spielberg magic
Fortunately, I will have to watch it again and again to catch all the characters and actions jam-packed into " Ready Player One ". But Tintin is a supercharged Indiana Jones adventure; Ready Player One doesn't merely up the scale but overcrowds itself.

LiAngelo Ball declares for the 2018 NBA Draft
LiAngelo Ball was embroiled in a shoplifting scandal in China a year ago while on a trip with the Bruins. While he is still young and is only 20 years old, his stats are a far cry from saying "superstar".

James contends the Crimson Tide has lifted "ideas, concepts and format" from a program on "Uninterrupted", the digital media platform the three-time National Basketball Association champion co-founded with business partner Maverick Carter. "In addition, your use of the name "Shop Talk" and the related logo infringes Uninterrupted's valuable trademark rights in "The Shop", and in the name and design associated therewith".

James and his legal team feel like Alabama stole a page from its creative playbook, so they sent the university a letter obtained by ESPN.

"The Shop" was developed by James and "Uninterrupted" co-founder Maverick Carter.

The goal of the letter was to talk things about with Alabama's athletic department before "rushing into legal proceedings", so only time will tell if it proves to be effective.
