"YOLO" Trademark Holder Calls Drake Out!

Tim Petrillo, the real trademark owner of the phrase "YOLO," decided to put Drake in his place for telling retailers to stop using the phrase, because he made it popular in his song "The Motto." Petrillo says he trademarked the phrase back in 2010, way before Drake released his song.

Petrillo named his Fort Lauderdale restaurant YOLO, and when the blog Clean Plate Charlie asked him about Drake's lawsuit threats, he responded by saying "I think Drake saying that is such a joke."

The New York Post also called Drake out on his threats, revealing that the phrase has been used throughout history since the 1700's.
