Dear YTWWN readers, I work with AttorneyScott and I'll be helping out with some lawyerly commentary on these tricky copyright issues over the next few days. For instance, the oh-so-specific "look and feel" test for substantially similar designs comes to mind. Below is a good example. Riccardo Tisci's depiction of Kanye and Jay-Z as beastly, fanged creatures for their Watch the Throne Givenchy t-shirts is a pretty awesome idea. But does it mean no other celebrity can be depicted as a fanged werewolf-like beast on a black t-shirt ever again? Did Mi Gente just recreate the idea by giving Lebron some fangs on his MVP shirt, to portray that he's an unstoppable beast on the court? Or did they go too far and copy the expression--the "look and feel"--of the Givenchy t-shirt?
Notorious rip off artist Mi Gente Clothing is at it again. This time they took the Watch the Throne Givenchy designed t-shirt and applied it to Lebron James MVP shirt. MGC should stand for More Givenchy Copies.
