The National Basketball Association (NBA) is trying to block use of its name and to take over the rights to the url http://www.teambjnba.com‘ in connection with the follower Oral Sex Giveaway being set up by Miami based pornstars Sara Jay (http://www.twitter.com/sarajayxxx) & Angelina Castro (http://www.twitter.com/angelinacastrox). Sara Jay & Angelina Castro pledged on twitter to give all of their followers oral sex (a BJ) if the Heat won the NBA title, using the hashtag #TeamBJNBA. Sara Jay’s followers swelled to over 236,000 & Castro’s to over 106,000.
After the Heat’s victory, Sara & Angelina announced they would fulfill the #TeamBJNBA pledge – hoping to maybe even break the World Record for oral sex in a day. In details set up at http://www.teambjnba.com, the girls invited all their twitter followers to go to popular Miami adult club Miami Velvet on August 2, 2012 for free no strings attached oral sex in honor of the Heat’s victory. They have Officially applied in writing to the Guinness Book of World Records to set a record for oral sex in a day and planned to stream the event live at their websites, http://www.sarajay.com & http://www.angelinacastrolive.com.
In a letter, the NBA has demanded the following by Monday, July 9:
“It has come to our attention that [you] are using NBA Intellectual Property without authorization, including on the website http://www.teambjnba.com and Twitter page https://twitter.com/#!/teambjnba (collectively the “Websites”), to promote an event by including references to the Miami Heat and its players. The Websites incorporate the “NBA” trademark in the domain name and account name and prominently feature NBA Intellectual Property — including the Heat team logo. Furthermore, NBAP has confirmed [you are] using a photograph depicting the likeness of Heat players Chris Bosh, Lebron James, and Dwyane Wade without their authorization and in violation of their rights. [Your] unauthorized use of NBA Intellectual Property is an attempt to capitalize on the fame and goodwill of NBA Intellectual Property and tarnishes the reputation of the NBA and the Heat. NBAP has not authorized [You] to use NBA Intellectual Property in any way and [Your] unauthorized use; therefore, constitutes among other things, trademark infringement, trademark dilution, false association, and unfair competition”
The NBA has demanded that the entire website & picture be pulled off the internet & that the url ‘teambjnba.com’ & twitter handle ‘@teambjnba’ be transferred to its ownership.
Sara Jay is quoted as saying: “This was all supposed to be fun. I supported the Heat and sent them TONS of followers during the season. Can’t they let us fans like us have a little fun? The NBA’s slogan is ‘Where Amazing Happens’… if offering 300,000 followers free oral sex isn’t amazing, I don’t know what is.” Angelina Castro adds: “As anyone knows who follows my twitter, I lived and breathed Miami Heat basketball all year. I am upset they are taking the fun out what we are trying to do. No one thought we were going to go ahead with the event. We aren’t hurting anyone. Does NBA stand for ‘No BJ’s Allowed?”
A representative for Sara Jay & Angelina Castro says they are in the process of determining a response by the NBA’s deadline.
