The Red Hot Chili Peppers are unhappy with Showtime, and in particular the network's use of Californication as a programme title.
Yes, we're seeing a struggle for parentage rights to a really lame pun:
He described Californication as "the signature CD, video and song of the band's career".
They want Showtime to stop using the title - which, okay, could be fair enough; they also want all the profits the programme has made, which seems a little much. After all, it's not like people are tuning in expecting to see a RHCP video, is it?
It doesn't help that David Duchovny is playing a character called Dani California, of course. [EDIT: He's not; someone else in the show is]
Even so, the band might not have any sort of claim to the word, as show creator Tom Kapinos says he pinched it from a 1970s bumper sticker:
Both sides will now be sued, of course, by bumper sticker manufacturers.
