  • 2/1/07-Battle Over 'Diddy' Name Continues In London Court

    The battle over the name "Diddy" continues, as London-based producer Richard "Diddy" Dearlove has accused Sean "Diddy" Combs of breaching an earlier agreement that stopped Combs from using the moniker in the United Kingdom.

    According to the Associated Press, Dearlove filed a lawsuit in High Court in London today (Feb. 1) claiming that Combs is in breach of an agreement struck on Sept. 5, 2006, in which the Royal Courts of Justice in London, ended the dispute between the producer and Combs over the use of the mark “Diddy” within the United Kingdom.

    Combs was ordered to pay Dearlove significant damages, all of his costs of the litigation, and Combs was barred from using the moniker in the United Kingdom.

    He claims that Combs is in breach of the agreement because Combs is still using the "Diddy" moniker on his myspace.com/diddy page and his YouTube channel.

    Combs had already directed British users that visited www.diddy.com to another website that did not use the "Diddy" namesake, but Dearlove's lawyer said that Combs was not able to do the same thing with websites like MySpace, where his profile has been viewed nearly 10 million times.

    "We want him either to use a neutral name like P. Diddy or to shut them down," Dearlove's lawyer Iain Purvis told The Associated Press. "It may be tough for him, but that is just unfortunate. He has made his bed, he should lie in it."

    Dearlove is seeking an injunction to prevent Combs from using the name on the popular websites. Dearlove may also seek damages.

    Dearlove has produced singles for Blondie, Ultranate, Dolly Parton, Sugababes under the name "Diddy."
