Obviously this is the most known local one-man show act in the world: the Naked Cowboy who performs on Time Square in NY.
Besides a probably good entertainer Robert Burck is also a clever business man as he registered the wordmark NAKED COWBOY and a pose (like the photo left). He already licensed the act to a Naked Cowgirl and acted against a naked M&M of a Mars campaign.
Now he entered a battle with Sandy Kane, a somewhat older Naked Cowgirl. Both parties already reached an agreement but now Kane filed the application for NAKED COWGIRL, all things can happen. The Naked Cowboy Enterprises (yes, it has become a whole company) reacts: “We love Sandy. She has a interesting method of communicating with her middle finger, a part of what we do not approve of.”
These are busy times as the Naked Cowboy was also involved in a legal fight with a naked Indian.
