Published

Rihanna-Diamond-Ball-Clara-Lionel-Foundation-December-2014-BellaNaija012In 2012 Rihanna brought a case against fashion retailer Topshop for using her picture on a shirt without her approval. Her lawyers argued that it was false advertising as it would make her fans buy the shirt thinking it was endorsed by Rihanna.

Well, today RiRi won the case against Topshop’s parent company Arcadia for £3.3million ($5.5million).

The high court found in favour of the Barbadian performer and granted an injunction prohibiting Topshop from selling the clothes without informing prospective purchasers that it had not been approved or authorized.

    Dayum! This is why I love the civilized world. The law works…for the most part. If it’s a 3rd world country, you will grow old while waiting for compensation. In fact you wont even bother.
