Taylor Swift Wins Lawsuit Against ‘Rip-Offs’


swift tshirt Taylor Swift Wins Lawsuit Against Rip Offs

We’ve all seen ‘that guy’ standing on the roadside, while waiting in traffic to get into the concert venue selling t-shirts with your favorite artist like [lastfm]Taylor Swift[/lastfm] on the front of the shirt. If  ‘that guy’ was legit, he wouldn’t be on the side of the road selling ‘bogus’ merchandise. But the shirts are usually cheaper….so do you buy one from ‘that guy?’

Taylor Swift has won a court fight against 16 individuals she claimed violated trademark by selling counterfeit merchandise bearing her name and picture.  Court documents said a federal judge in Nashville granted a default judgment last week permanently barring 16 individuals from making or selling Taylor Swift merchandise.   Swift claimed in the suit that her merchandise enforcement team found numerous individuals selling fake goods across the country during her 2009 tour, including T-shirts with her image on them.

I can understand Taylor’s side completely, and she deserved to win her suit, but I can also understand why people like up would be ‘tempted’ by getting a ‘better deal’ on a t-shirt.

What do you think? Have you bought ‘bogus’ merchandise from one of ‘those guys?”
