London, June 23 (ANI): A US man, who has been doing a Naked Cowboy act in New York, has asked a bikini-clad woman who calls herself The Naked Cowgirl to stop copying his act.
The Times Square cowboy, whose real name is Robert Burck, is known for strumming his guitar wearing only briefs and a cowboy hat.
According to the New York Post, he has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Sandy Kane, who wears a red, white and blue cowboy hat and matching bikini.
Burck, 38, said that if Kane, who is in her 50s, was going to make money by posing for photos, he wants her to sign a "Naked Cowboy Franchise Agreement".
Most of his licensed franchisees are required to pay 5,000 dollars a year or 500 dollars a month and go through a screening process.
Kane, whose real name is Sandra Brodsky and who is a former stripper who is now a fixture of the city comedy scene, says she doesn't owe Burck anything.
"You know how much money I make? Two dollars a picture. I'm not selling any products," the Telegraph quoted her as saying. (ANI)
