Diddy Settles Louis Vuitton LawsuitSean 'Diddy' Combs
has settled a copyright infringement lawsuit
with fashion house Louis Vuitton,
ending a dispute over product placement in various Danity Kane videos.The Bad Boy mogul and Warner Music Group
were sued by executives at the luxury label
for unauthorized use of Louis Vuitton's intellectual property.In the legal papers, filed in Paris, France in August 2008, Combs' company
was accused of using the Louis Vuitton logo
in two of the girl group's music videos,
as well as in album packaging photos for their self-titled 2006 release.The two parties
reached a deal on Thursday. Combs
has agreed to remove all visual references
to the trademarks from future releases of the videos
and album in question.
That won't be too tough as Danity Kane broke up in February.The financial terms of the settlement have not been released.
