Marley Family Is Suing Bob’s Brother Over Trademark Infringement

Rita Marley, Bob Marley’s widow, is reportedly angry at one of the reggae legend family member who is using the Marley name to sell everything from concerts to fish, poultry, energy drinks and booze.
According to TMZ, Rita and nine of Bob Marley’s children filed a federal lawsuit against Richard Booker, Bob Marley’s brother from another father, for trademark infringement and unauthorized use of Marley’s likeness.”

TMZ, who obtained copies of the suit, said Booker has used the Trademark name “Mama Marley” to sellfish, fish and chips, fish cakes, fish croquettes, fish fillets, fish mousse, and fish sausages among other things.

The suit also claims Booker is using Marley’s name and image to market an annual concert in Miami, known as the 9 Mile Music Festival.

Bob’s family says they have the rights to all things Marley and want all of Booker’s profits. They also want a judge to order Booker to stop all future use of the name.

The upcoming 9 Mile concert is headlined by Damian, Stephen and Julian Marley who are all plaintiffs in the suit.
