DETROIT — You gotta file a lawsuit in Detroit Rock City.
A company that controls photos and posters of the rock group Kiss is suing to stop the online sale of a book with pictures of the performers.
Kiss Catalog Ltd. says trademarks are being violated by a book titled "Vintage Kiss Photos: 1974-1981." The lawsuit names Marc Scallatino of Blackwood, N.J., and photographer Janet Macoska of Cleveland.
Kiss Catalog, based in New York, is asking a judge to shut down vintagekissphotos.com and order the pair to surrender any books with photos of Kiss members.
E-mail and phone messages seeking comment were left Tuesday with Scallatino and Macoska.
The lawsuit was filed last week in federal court in Detroit, where part of the 1975 Kiss album "Alive!" was recorded at Cobo Arena.
