The fashion house Marc Jacobs plaintiff Nirvana

The dissolved grunge acts Nirvana have sued the fashion house Marc Jacobs - is now the plaintiff it back.

It happens, after the fashion house in december made a t-shirt with a logo that resembles much of the yellow smiley, as Nirvana has used as a logo.

"is Invalid and not possible to enforce," call Marc Jacobs the claim from Nirvana's lawyers, writes CNN.

the Band's response is that the logo is almost identical with it, the band has used since 1992. A logo, which since then has been copyrighted.

"Almost identical," describes the logos.

In the lawsuit, it states that the logo is designed by the deceased lead singer Kurt Cobain in 1991.

After he committed suicide in 1994, is the rights to the logo passed to Nirvana, Inc., there among other are the property of the other band members.

There are also brands that use the logo, all of which have sought approval from Nirvana.

the T-shirt with the logo is a part of the modehusets Redux Grunge collection, which came on the street in 2018.

It costs approximately 780 dkk.

the Difference between the two logere is evidently just, that instead of two x's, which represent the eyes on the smiley in the Nirvana logo is an M and a J on the modehusets version.

Furthermore, the word 'Nirvana' changed out with 'Heaven' - that heaven in English.
