Louis Vuitton Sues Charity

Nadia Plesner :


LV has sued a student artist, Nadia Plesner, over her “Simple Living” campaign, a fundraiser that benefits the Divest for Darfur organization.

Plesner drew an image of a Darfur victim holding a teacup style dog and toting an LV-inspired bag, to prove that a Paris Hilton-centric image would get more media attention than real-life Darfur victims. She was right, and has been raising money for the cause by putting her drawing on t-shirts and posters.

Except LV isn’t exactly happy about it – even though 100% of Plesner’s profits have been going straight to Darfur victims, Louis Vuitton is suing her for around $22,000 per day that she continues her campaign – apparently they think the design, though it doesn’t include an exact copy of the Murakami pattern, infringes on their intellectual property rights.
