Rihanna Wins Lawsuit Against Topshop

Featured Posts

Rihanna‘s lawsuit against Topshop seems to have ended once and for all, and naturally, Badgalriri was the one to come out victorious. London’s Court of Appeal upheld their ruling that the store couldn’t sell a t-shirt bearing the singer’s image without her consent.

 

The series of t-shirts featured a pic of Rihanna during her Talk That Talk era, which she found “unflattering†and of “poor†quality, prompting her to sue Topshop’s parent company, Arcadia, for a cool $5 million.

I'm surprised something as big as Topshop even tried that though, like I would've expected that they'd know not to use big celebrity images without consent in case something like this would happen :ohno: Luckily I got my Rihanna t-shirt from River Island which was actually Rihanna merchandise so it was consented and official and everything :laughga:

 

At least it's over now, Rihanna's come out with a lump of money and Arcadia has come out with a lesson to be more careful :shrug:

Good, sue that!

It is amazing a big shop such as Top Shop would do things like this for a little bit of money.

Since they are big company, they must have already understood about copyrights.

There's a lot of big clothing stores that steal images/artwork but it's good that she won. I can understand why she didn't like the picture :rip:

emma roberts is an abuser

good for her. Rihanna is a brand. I'm sure if another company started slapping the TOPSHOP logo on ****, topshop would sue as well.
