In an earlier post I wrote about motorcycle riding legend Peter Fonda suing Dolce & Gabbana because he “suffered injuries to his peace, happiness, feelings, goodwill”, among other things, because his image was being used without permission. Will now Harley Davidson is suing Urban Outfitters because Urban Outfitters has “mutilated” its trademarks.

The Motor Company filed the suit in Wisconsin (think they have a favorable venue?). What they are claiming is that Urban Outfitters took older HD, official, t-shirts removed the tags and labels and replaced them with their own. That was after they modified the shirts by removing the sleeves and necks, shredding the bottom and so on.

When I did a search on the Urban Outfitters website I received the following:

When I did a google search I found that this was what the company was selling:
