Stones Sue To Hold Their Tongue
The Rolling Stones are suing German clothing line, New Yorker Fashion, for using their iconic logo of a tongue on their sale posters (above).
Lawyers from the group's Netherlands-based law firm are demanding a $315,000 settlement and a $25,500 fine.
However, the CEO of New Yorker Fashion, Fritz Knapp, is refusing to back down without a fight and is determined to prove that he has every right to use the image. "The tongue is not the Stones' alone. The posters were made by our creative department," Knapp, said. source
