William Shatner says a nice big donation can settle Hamilton condo

William Shatner is asking condo developer Brad Lamb to make a sizable donation to his charity after the Star Trek star’s name was used to advertise a condo unit in Hamilton.Last week, the Montreal-born actor called out Lamb on Twitter for using his name and caricature likeness in brochures to sell the million-dollar unit. Mr. @BradJLamb it has come to my attention you are using my name & caricature likeness in your brochures to sell real estate. You are also using the name & likeness of @hwinkler4real & others I do not recall giving you permission to use my name or likeness https://t.co/EBG2lbGBYr pic.twitter.com/moN5n351py— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) November 22, 2017Lamb later issued a statement saying his intention was to pay tribute to the stars and that his company was making every effort to remove references to Shatner and the other celebrities from promotional material.But Shatner tweeted late Monday, “Removing my name doesn’t exonerate you for damages for using my brand in a commercial venture. I understand you are a kind gentleman; let’s settle this like gentlemen.”He then proposed Lamb give “a nice big donation” to Shatner’s charity in lieu of having to talk to his laywers.Television City is a $360-million project by the Lamb Development Corporation which includes plans to build two connected towers at Jackson and Caroline streets. It’s set to take over the current home of CHCH TV studios, however, CHCH TV is not involved in the development. read more
