Do I understand this correctly?

The argument is basically that somebody who looks like her can't make a living as a model.

I really hope Gap fights back in court.  Put some of the millions Kim & co. have earned from reality TV into the coffers of lawyers before they lose their case.

The so-called look-alike is a fully-fledged  minor actress and model in her own right, how can she be ordered to stop using her face? Even if she was a "look-alike" model, it's still stupid.

lol.. she does resemble her! But she has more talent than KK in that she can sing. Quite a catchy tune imo

Absolutely ridiculous! 

I wonder if the real problem is that Kim's ex, Reggie Bush, recently began dating her lookalike... ;)

Ms. K should be saving her money so she has something to live on when this bubble of fame has moved on to some other cutie pie.

Spending her earnings on lawyers suggests she might have started believing her own publicity. It's amazing what a sex tape and a shapely butt will do to propel someone to media darling :) Not a lifetime career, however.

Yes indeed - short-term thinking appears to be the curse of the times.

I wonder if this dumb cow realizes that she's helping her newcomer rival become famous.

I think calling Kim a cow is rude, but I do agree with your assessment. Plus I think the lawsuit is petty and not sure it will get on the docket, not much substance.

It is great ad though, very catchy.
