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”
