The Denver Post - - LIFE&CULTURE - By Ali Zerdin

ljubl­jana, slove­nia » No more Me­la­nia Trump honey, cakes, shoes and un­der­wear for Slove­ni­ans.

The fu­ture U.S. first lady has hired a law firm in her na­tive coun­try to protect her name and im­age from be­ing used on numer­ous prod­ucts that have sprung up since her hus­band, Don­ald Trump, was elected pres­i­dent.

Natasa Pirc Musar, di­rec­tor of the Pirc Musar&Part­nerji law firm, said Fri­day that the use of the name “Me­la­nia Trump” for com­mer­cial pur­poses without ap­proval of her client would be against the law in the small Alpine state and would rep­re­sent a vi­o­la­tion of per­sonal rights.

“Ju­di­cial prac­tice in Slove­nia is clear: the use of the name, sur­name and photo of some­one for com­mer­cial pur­poses without ap­proval is not al­lowed,” Pirc Musar told The As­so­ci­ated Press, adding that the law firm has sent a press re­lease to all Slove­nian me­dia, warn­ing of a pos­si­ble vi­o­la­tion of the Me­la­nia Trump reg­is­tered trade­mark.
