Lady Gaga wins Lady Goo Goo injunction

In vogue pop sensation Lady Gaga has won a High Court injunction banning the release of a single from her animated namesake – Lady Goo Goo.

The Moshi Dance song, performed by a cartoon baby from the Moshi Monsters online game has proved a hit on YouTube, something UK owners Mind Candy were keen to capitalise on with an iTunes release.

Mind Candy have now been banned however from “promoting, advertising, selling, distributing or otherwise making available to the public The Moshi Dance" after judges were persuaded by Gaga’s lawyers that consumers were liable to confuse the identities of the two characters.

Michael Acton Smith, Mind Candy’s chief executive, told the BBC: "It was a strange ruling - we certainly weren't expecting to lose.

"We've had a huge amount of public support. I think this could be a worrying precedent for other parody acts and tribute bands."
