Hollywood to Michigan: Hands off!
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has sent a “cease and desist” letter to a Michigan film production company for using the famous image of a Hollywood Walk of Fame star to tout Michigan’s new film incentives.

The ad shows a typical Walk of Fame star but instead of the name of a movie personality the name reads “Michigan.”
