The Color Purple

The Smoking Gun: Landlord and NBA star Carlos Boozer sued tenant and artist currently known as Prince for allegedly remodeling Boozer’s Los Angeles, California mansion in the artist’s “trademark” color purple.

Speaking of color trademarks, Prince can register purple as a United States trademark so long as he can show “secondary meaning” which no doubt he can. See Trademark Manual of Examining Procedure Section 1202.05.
