NEW YORK, Dec 28, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- A federal judge in New York has ruled there's little chance people will confuse Sylvester Stallone's magazine Sly with a foot fetish Web site.
The Web site also called Sly had filed a $1 million copyright infringement suit against Stallone's lifestyle and fitness magazine for men over 40, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.
"There is a little difference between shoe fetish and Mr. Sylvester Stallone," Manhattan Judge Richard Casey said in ruling in favor of Sly publishers American Media.
However, Sly the magazine's win in the courtroom was offset by a TKO from American Media, the News noted.
American Media attorney Susan Coleman told the newspaper, "The last issue is on the newsstand and there will be no additional issues."
