NEW YORK -- Sylvester Stallone can keep his magazine "Sly" on newsstands despite the complaints of an Internet magazine with the same name that a judge suggested was more of a shoe "fetish" publication.
U.S. District Judge Richard Casey said the actor who gained fame as "Rocky" in the 1970s could continue to produce the lifestyle and fitness magazine for middle age men even though it carries the same title as the Internet magazine.
"There is a little difference between shoe fetish and Mr. Sylvester Stallone," Casey said at a hearing Tuesday.
John Bostany, a lawyer for the Internet magazine that brought a lawsuit seeking $1 million in damages, protested the judge's characterization of the magazine.
"My client's magazine is not a fetish mag," he said.
Despite the victory, it was unclear how long Stallone's magazine would last. The current issue was the last of four scheduled to be published before the magazine was to be evaluated to determine its future.
A message left for the magazine's publisher, American Media, was not immediately returned.

His first "Rocky" and all sequels adhere perfectly to the command of perfectly timed drama.
The point Sly was making with "Rocky" is that "he is Rocky and so are we"...that desire of man to rise above his class (by rugged American individualism) and not be submerged into it by communism and socialism is the very hallmark of FreeRepublicans.
If Sly likes shoes, I might even trade mine in on a new pair...

Looks like another case of celebrities having a different set of rules.

Nominated by William J. Clinton on July 16, 1997, to a seat vacated by Charles S. Haight, Jr.; Confirmed by the Senate on October 21, 1997, and received commission on October 24, 1997.
No, it looks like a name that is synonomous with Stallone and has been for many years, long before the internet came along.
Stallone said in 1998 from his home in England, that we are "living in the dark ages over there" and police need to go "door to door and take every handgun" in America.
Working man's hero? Just another lefty actor.
