Sorry, Drake: YOLO Has Been Trademarked

Earlier this week, Canadian rapper Drake uploaded some instagram pictures of clothing bearing the acronym "YOLO" at a Walgreens and a Macy's suggesting the businesses pay up for using "his" catchphrase.

Clean Plate Charlie spoke to restauranteur Tim Petrillo, co-owner of YOLO in Fort Lauderdale to get his take on Drake's lawsuit threats. Petrillo's response, "I think Drake saying that is such a joke."

Why so funny? Because Petrillo actually holds the YOLO trademark.

So here it is: the actual copyright. And it doesn't belong to Drake. Apparently, the rapper doesn't know much about law.
