Not a easy ride

Probably Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana think that there is something of a conspiracy, first the two designers have been convicted in Italy for fraud and now Hollywood actor Peter Fonda is starting a lawsuit against them. The allegation is infringement of copyright of Fonda.

What happened? Well, the t-shirt left has been sold by Dolce & Gabbana and retailer Nordstrom. This t-shirt bears the words Easy Rider and a photo of Fonda. Not very clever as no permission was given by Fonda, the writer, producer and actor of Easy Rider.

Fonda claims in a lawsuit “injuries to his peace, happiness, feelings, goodwill, reputation, image, loss of fair market value of his services, and dilution of his current and future publicity value”. A claim worth of 6 million dollars!
