Rihanna t-shirt: Topshop can't sell without her permission, Appeal Court affirms
A sleeveless £22 priced top has been at the centre of legal battle between Rihanna and Topshop over the high street fashion retailer's selling of the t-shirt with image of the singer without her permission. Rihanna previously won the case but Topshop appealed the judgement and has now won the appeal as well. Three appeal court judges upholds High Court's ban on the retailer selling the top. Rihanna and her licensing companies claim that she did not license the use of her image on the clothing and that people purchasing the top would think it has her endorsement.
