Eminem Opposes Podcast Name Over Trademark Infringement Concerns
Rapper Eminem has reportedly opposed Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon‘s podcast, Reasonably Shady due to its name, which he claims is too similar to his own music brand Shady Records.
According to sources close to Eminem, the rapper’s legal team has filed an opposition to the podcast’s trademark application, arguing that the use of the word “shady” could create confusion in the marketplace.
Bryant and Dixon have not yet commented on the matter.
Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, founded Shady Records in 1999 and has released several albums under the label, including The Slim Shady LP and Encore.
It is unclear whether the opposition will have any impact on the podcast’s future or if Bryant and Dixon will need to change the name of their show.
This is not the first time Eminem has been involved in a trademark dispute. In 2021, he won a lawsuit against a New Zealand political party, which had used a song similar to his hit Lose Yourself in a campaign advertisement.
Representatives for Eminem and Bryant and Dixon have not yet responded to requests for comment.
