The sad thing is that the way Copyright laws are written, if LV does not go after little people like this, they can be seen as abandoning their copyright over their logo, just as Bayer lost the ownership of the word "Aspirin" years ago. Then, big companies like Walmart would be able to make millions selling knock off LV bags and LV wouldn't be able to do anything about it.
What they should do, if they are smart, is to license the images to this woman for $1, or even license it for what they would charge a larger company, and then donate those proceeds to Darfur. Then, their copyright is safe, but they don`t appear to be uncaring to the poor.

Hoo boy, LV better watch their backs. If this is plastered (as I assume it has been) on multiple social aggregate sites then this could get ugly for the company. Anonymous (I hope this is them and not a copycat group) can be pretty deadly. I hope this works, Louis Viutton is a pretty awful company.
