Britney Spears vs Louis Vuitton
Do you remember when Britney used to make songs like 'Do Something' and dance around in a way that left every woman in the world practicing in front of the mirror? It might seem like a life time ago but Louis Vuitton have only just completed a law suit against the music video. The French fashion house decided to take action following their trademark handbag fabric featuring in the pink car in this video.
They have won a $117,000 cash settlement and the rights to have a Britney Spears video banned from future use. Sony, BMG and MTV online will foot the bill rather than Ms Spears herself. The tribunal concluded that the director of the video had clearly emphasized the Louis Vuitton brand. And I thought all publicity was good publicity?
