And also big money as Rasta Imposta, a big seller of party costumes, started a court action against Kmart Corp. and Sears in New Jersey on the basis of infringement of copyright , trade dress infringement and unfair competition. Rasta Imposta has registered one of the banana costumes as copyright in the US.
A case about banana costumes is remarkable, the juicy details as well: until this year Kmart bought the banana costumes from Rasta Imposta. This year, no deal has been made and Kmart has purchased the costumes somewhere else. A complete “knockoff” according to Rasta Imposta. An interesting banana suit!
