A federal judge tossed out a lawsuit by Playboy Enterprises
against former playmate Terri Welles. Judge Judith Keep of the United
States District Court for the Southern District of California rejected
Playboy's claims that Welles violated trademark laws by using her titles
"Playboy Playmate of the Month" and "Playboy Playmate of the Year 1981" on
her Web site. According to Welles' attorney, Keep found that Welles used
her titles in good faith.
