Cock sues baller

Mark Durante - who was briefly in the Revolting Cocks - is Kevin Durant, a basketball player over a terrible nickname:

According to the suit, filed Wednesday in federal court for the Northern District of Illinois, Durante has repeatedly demanded that the Oklahoma City Thunder's three-time NBA All Star stop using the nickname. He's also suing Nike, which he says has begun using a superhero version of Durant named "Durantula" as part of a shoe campaign, and Panini Authentic, which is selling photographs and basketballs with the Durantula inscription.
The real sting is not that the sporting person is using the name, but that Kevin is the more popular of the two Durantulas:
"A few years ago if you Googled 'Durantula' it was all about me," [Mark] said.

Then, he said, his friends and fans started telling him they couldn't find him on Google because the search results that came up were all about Durant.
Hang about - rather than an expensive lawsuit, why didn't he just tell his friends and fans to Google "durantula music" or "durantula + mark"?

This is really the most ridiculous story you have ever covered on here. Are none of these friends and fans not saying to Mark Durante, this lawsuit makes you look a bit of an asshat. That said of course I am awaiting to top google results before noted pianist files a lawsuit complaining that some Stafford ponce is more popular than him.
