Reports have emerged alleging that Kanye West’s YEEZY brand is being sued for copyright infringement.
According to TMZ, a company called Jordan Outdoor Enterprises has filed a lawsuit against YEEZY and LeBron James’s Unknwn for copying a distinct camouflage pattern it claims J.O.E. has exclusive rights to.
In the suit, Jordan Outdoor alleges YEEZY representatives contacted the company to inquire about using the designs but ceased communications once it was made clear the camouflage print would need to be licensed.
The designs, which have reportedly been ripped off from Jordan Outdoor’s Realtree line of apparel, have been seen on everything from hoodies and jackets to pants and shirts – some of which have even been modeled by Kim Kardashian West in the past.
As always, stay tuned for updates as well get them. In the meantime, let us know your thoughts on the lawsuit in the comments.
