Today’s WWD has an update on last week’s reports that Rihanna is suing a Topshop supplier for using her image on a t-shirt without permission. Topshop and Rihanna’s lawyers declined to comment, as did River Island, the Topshop competitor with whom Rihanna is officially collaborating. The article does say that even though the U.K. has no “right of personality” that protects image use like the U.S. does, the case will be heard this summer. If Rihanna prevails, it would be a “groundbreaking decision,” according to the WWD story.
Take that, Topshop!
