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.

@patticakes: its the company's duty to protect its employees, not the consumer public. after BP drated up in the gulf of mexico did you rush out to buy gas at the local BP gas station so you could save the jobs of the BP employees and the gas station attendants?

when a company drats up (in any way) they have to expect consequences. sometimes thats a product boycott, sometimes it goes further. don't like it? dont help. im sure they don't need your help.

LV may have over-reacted, but is it fair to put all the people they employ in jeopardy of losing their jobs? Think, man, THINK!

Has no body ever heard of "Fair Use"?

Also, if I take a picture of someone holding a Louis Vuitton, is that copyright infringement? Of course not, say a drawing is, is retarded.

Only if she made a frigging handbag, would they have a case.

That's lame..how come LV isn't suing wal-mart and every other 2bit store that has kinda copied that look of handbag without totally copying it


She hasn't "kinda copied the look of handbag". It's far closer than that.

Do you have any examples from "wal-mart and every other 2bit store" of copies as close as this?

Also, Walmart et alia aren't using it to depict LV in a bad way. Cheap knock-offs from bottom-end shops would have far less effect on LV than bad publicity.

I think it's worth pointing out that the actual sum Louis Vitton are asking for (according to the formal submission to the court) is 1 Euro.

She is blatantly and deliberately infringing copyright in merchandise that she's selling. Maybe the profits from the T-shirts go to charity. Can you prove that? What about the profits from her paintings?

You can't reasonably expect a business to give up the copyright(*) on a profitable product just because an artist orders them to so that she can use it to sell stuff and conduct a campaign against them.


* If you don't defend copyright every time, especially in such an obvious case of a copyrighted designed being used against the copyright holder, you'll have a hard time ever enforcing it.

Wait a minute...
She is criticizing materialism in popular culture by designing potentially pop culture, materialistic wears?

Ironic much?

That's about as moronic as a "pro life" activist killing abortion doctors.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for freedom of speech, and I do think that the people at LV are just being jerks. But I think she could have found a better way to prove her point.

THE FACTS:

May 6, 2008 New York Magazine reported LV attempted to stop the case from going to court, but that they were forced to take legal action when Plesner did not respond to their original request to remove the contested image, nor to the subsequent Cease and Desist order

Plesner was attempting to conceal the lengths that LV went to in order to prevent the lawsuit because she wanted to make LV look bad to gain free PR for her shirts.

In October 2008, Louis Vuitton dropped its lawsuit to show Plesner they would be glad to meet her halfway and forgive the past.

Plesner then went ahead and painted the picture, causing LV to reopened the lawsuit.

Anonymous? You mean, the guys who always say they're going to do something, but then give up shortly afterward and move on to saying they're going to do something else?

I'm sure Louis Vuitton is shaking in their bootsies.

If so, they are now completely hammer-bag f*cking retarded.
