Evel Knievel Sues Kanye West And AOL Over 'Evel Kanyevel"



TheSmokingGun provides a copy of the complaint filed by Evel Knievel in the Middle District of Florida, alleging that musician Kanye West infringed Mr. Knievel’s rights in his name, likeness and jumpsuit (I’m serious about the jumpsuit), by portraying a character named EVEL KANYEVEL who attempts to leap a canyon in a rocket, in his music video for the song ‘Touch The Sky” (above).
Interestingly, AOL is a named defendant, apparently because it returns the video as a search result for a search for EVEL KNIEVEL.
