Evil is descended from a long line of stunt men dating to the 15th century, so his claims may have some validity. Maybe Medieval Knievel also has the same claim?

Cases have been ruled in the plaintiff's favor over trademark infringements of poses, Vanna White collected money from a company using her likeness and pose in a commercial. Evel,"I'm trying to be an example, be like me and be an f-ing idiot with terrible haircut and a hairy chest to catch my bagel's crumbs so I can eat them later in the emergency room" At least Kanye crashed and didn't disparage Evel by successfully clearing SRC.

[...] Kanye West and Evel Knievel are going to mediation on this case.  News reports are describing this as all but a settlement, but that seems less likely to be based on an understanding of where the parties stand — going to mediation when you almost have a settlement without one, while not unheard of, is very uncommon — than on a misunderstanding of the civil litigation process.  They might settle at mediation; they might night.  We’ll jump that canyon when we come to it.

I love this part: "I have done the best I can to set an example for children..." Uh-huh. That's why every one of his performances had to include, "Kids, don't try this at home." I also find this part interesting: "According to Knievel's lawsuit, the former daredevil trademarked his name and image in 2001." I'll buy the idea that his image constitutes a trademark; but I wonder how far that goes. I was once engulfed in great heapings of debate whether "poses" could constitute a trademark; and if not, whether a license agreement could stipulate no use of particular "poses". (Ever get involved in the Open Gaming License, Ron? That generated a huge morass of IP discussions and disputes.)
