Rihanna and Topshop T-shirt case

The pop singer Rihanna has won a legal battle with Topshop over the use of her image on a T-shirt.

Topshop claimed the singer was “making an unjustifiable bid to establish a free standing image right over use of her picture in the UK”, however Rihanna’s lawyers argued that the image was very similar to one used on a CD album cover and could dupe fans.

“ Judge Mr Justice Birss ruled that a substantial number of buyers were likely to have been deceived into buying the t-shirt because of a false belief it had been approved by the singer”
