Rihanna Wins Case Against Retailer Topshop
A British judge has ruled in favor of the singer Rihanna, who sued retailer Topshop for selling a T-shirt bearing her image without permission. High Court Justice Colin Birss says buyers were likely deceived by believing she had authorized its sale. Birss says the sales represented a loss of Rihanna's reputation in the fashion realm, where the singer has been trying to carve out a name as a designer. She has a clothing line in her name at a rival store.
