Louis Vuitton to Britney Spears: Do not use our logo!
The French luxury company won a court injunction in Paris to keep the pop star’s 2005 “Do Something” video — in which Spears, 25, drives a pink Hummer with a counterfeit Vuitton “cherry blossom”- monogrammed dashboard — from airing on European TV stations, Women’s Wear Daily reports.
The civil court ruling also ordered the video’s producer to pay $117,600 for damages to Vuitton’s image, and $1,470 per day until the video is removed from the Internet.
Named in the suit are Spears’ record label, Jive, its parent company Zomba Label Group and Sony BMG and MTV Online, where the video has appeared.
Vuitton, Jive and reps for Spears did not respond to requests for comment from WWD.
