Amy Winehouse: Squatting in a dead woman's shoes

The plans to start a foundation in Amy Winehouse's name has hit a snag, as someone has stolen the name:

[Mitch Winehouse] said [delays to the launch is] because the name 'The Amy Winehouse Foundation' has been registered by someone else.

"Somebody else pinched it off of us before we could get it registered," Mr Winehouse said.

"All these donations which are coming in - we don't know what to do with them at the moment."
Now, it's obviously sickening that some scumpuppy has tried to steal the name, but I'm a bit lost as to why this is delaying things. Couldn't you just set it up under a name like, say, The Real Amy Winehouse Foundation, and then - at some point down the line - sort out the name issue?

It shouldn't be too difficult, all you have to do is follow the unholy stench that must be rising from wherever the sots who have grabbed the name frolic in their own filth.

In the meantime, Mitch might need to focus on what, exactly, people are donating to. Or for:
"The plan is to help all children - not just rehabilitation, not just substance abuse. It's to help all children in need."
Mitch, I think you might find "children in need" has gone, too. I know it must be incredibly difficult for Mitch to focus right now, but the charity is starting to sound a little "Money For People" at the moment.
