Lionsgate Sues TD Ameritrade Over ‘Dirty Dancing’ Spoof Ad | Film News


Nobody puts baby in a corner” has become a household catchphrase from the film Dirty Dancing. However, using it for promotional material can land you in trouble. Especially without consent from Lionsgate. Lionsgate is going after TD Ameritrade full force, saying that they ‘adulterated taglines’ and used a cartoon ‘reenactment’ of the famous dance lift from Dirty Dancing; which was executed by Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze, for one of their company ads. The lawsuit follows TD Ameritrade’s attempt to get ‘declaratory relief that its ad was safe from the infringement’. Lionsgate definitely haven’t left this lawsuit in a corner.
