    Yeah, pure drama by Lebron.

    Coach Saban: "We're just having fun with it."

    Lebron: "It's our 'platform'."

    Whatever dude.

    I don't see coach losing this. I think at worst they are looking at a title change. The idea of the format changing is so far fetched that it really is laughable. Bama WILL continue to make the show and now it will have even more viewers than if Lebron had said nothing at all. Let's be honest, the show is really just for Bama fans and recruits. It's just used to highlight Bama's pedigree and make high-schoolers feel like they could eventually belong to this prestigious collective. It's very niche and not at all worth getting upset about.

    Look, if a company can make a "Dr. Thunder" cola that tastes remarkably like "Dr. Pepper" and get away with it then I'm pretty sure Bama can have a web show called "Shop Talk" that shares a similar formate to "The Shop."

    Let's not forget Coca-Cola's own MR. PIBB - maybe LeBron could be compelled into changing his show's name to "Shop Talk with MR. PIAA (Pain in Alabama's A**)" ...

    This seems pretty important to the whole discussion...

    If that's really how things are (and Rovell covers business), then it seems like all they did was give free publicity to Alabama.

    Lebron is just being a jerk, nothing new here. He's acting like he created the idea of barbershop talk shows which is just laughable. According to the letter sent to UA, this isn't just about the name of the show but the whole format. You can't copyright a format otherwise there would have only ever been one news show, one sitcom, one daytime talk show, etc. They have no case except for maybe getting the name changed. The show is not going anywhere and Lebron can just deal with it. Poor little crybaby.

    About the only thing I can see UA having to do is alter the name a bit. But you're right. You cannot copyright a format.

    Makes me despise LeBron James even more. What I really want to say I would be banned for so I'll stop here! LOL

    I like Lebron, but this is getting out of hand.

    Format looks to be the same here....

    From an article currently on ESPN website about this topic


    However, none of James' businesses have a copyright or trademark associated with "The Shop," which would make this an intellectual property claim.

    I don't believe Coach Saban would have commented the way he did unless he already knew what was going to happen. He is to planned and calculated to let that slip out.
