Danity Kane’s Dispute with Louis Vuitton

So today I found out that Louis Vuitton had brought claims against Danity Kane for unauthorized use of their intellectual property.

Who knew!?!

However, Louis Vuitton Malletier issued a statement Thursday indicating that “an amicable settlement agreement” had been signed.

According to LV:

As part of the settlement, Bad Boy Records agrees to remove from Danity Kane’s self-titled debut-album, as well as from two related videos, visual references to Louis Vuitton trademarks. Going forward Bad Boy will make available amended versions of the album and videos without the Louis Vuitton content and shall not use Louis Vuitton intellectual property in the future without authorization. The financial terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

 

In the end, the Louis Vuitton camp says they were pleased with Warner Music Group’s and Bad Boy’s commitment to educating their artists about the importance of respecting the world renowned Toile Monogram and Multicolore marks.

Interesting….

In all, it seems that the Bad Boy folk were pretty cooperative.
