New Kids On The Block Sue Copycats

NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK have filed a lawsuit against a production company - accusing bosses of using the band's name for another all-male group.
The 1990s teen idols, who reunited in 2008, filed papers against SM Productions, a company which provides DJs for events in California.
According to TMZ.com, the band's lawyers allege the company tried to form a new group - also entitled New Kids On The Block - in a bid to record music with them and pass it off as made by the original boy band.
The lawsuit also claims the company attempted to register the name, as well as the group's record artwork on album Hangin' Tough, with the U.S Patents and Trademark Office.
The details of the claim are not known as WENN goes to press.
