The licensing company that controls the name and image of “The King” is ordering Sin City chapel operators to stop using Elvis in themed ceremonies...

How petty of them.

The licensing company that controls the name and image of “The King” is ordering Sin City chapel operators to stop using Elvis in themed ceremonies, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Authentic Brands Group sent cease-and-desist letters earlier this month to multiple chapels, saying they must comply by the end of May.

Wonder what Authentic Brands Group would do if they were made aware of the name Elvis being used as a user name here.

Soooo decadent...

Time to get with the times, replace the Elvis statues with Justin Bieber or Elon Musk with payment only by bitcoin

Replace Elvis with Martin Luther King or Muhammed Ali. Individuals who never sought to claw money from the masses. Not that Elvis did .. but it sends a message that licensing companies are dispensable.

"Elvis image bans shake, rattle and roll Las Vegas chapels"

Nice try, however "shake rattle and roll" wasn't an Elvis song, but a hit by Big Joe Turner.

It would have been a perfect headline to use an actual Elvis song, like this:

-Elvis image bans leave Las Vegas chapels "All Shook Up"-

This does not get the Elvis Seal of Approval.

Always love when you give the ESoA, but this is most fitting.

So I signed in just now only to up-vote you.

How about sending Elvis a cease and desist letter for copying black gospel and early rock songs?
