American Idol comes to Austin (or at least their attorneys do)

FremantleMedia, owner of the TV show American Idol, has sued Austin's Palazio Men's Club, for their use of "Stripper Idol." A copy of the complaint can be found here.

The various media reports all seem to focus on the issue of likelihood of confusion (which doesn't strike me as very strong), yet ignoring the dilution by tarnishment claim (which seems like a slam dunk).
