Urban Outfitters Ends Sale Of Harley-Davidson T-Shirts After Copyright Infringement Suit
Harley-Davidson is known for doggedly pursuing those who try to capitalize on its legendary brand. Urban Outfitters, it seems, is the latest company to buckle under the pressure of the Motor Company’s litigative might. According to Women’s Wear Daily, Harley agreed to drop its suit if Urban Outfitters and its sub-brand Free People cease to fabricate and sell any products sporting the company’s logo.
This suit covered more than just t-shirts Free People manufactured. Apparently, the company was also reconstructing official Hrley t-shirts into other articles of clothing. This action is also blocked in the settlement reached by the two companies.
Urban Outfitters must surely be hanging its head in shame…
