Louis Vuitton Sues Artist: Nadia Plesner

A powerful image. The truth hurts enough to resort to suing.

Indeed it does..

Wow. I hope Plesner says the bag is a knock off. She can most likely get off by saying it was a satire.

I agree w/ you Ashley... Plus the logos on the bag read "LS", not "LV"... I'd like to see how this plays out in court b/c it seems like they can only sue based off of "likeliness".

wow I seen this image before but just noticed what the image really meant. OMG. I think this image says a lot and needs to be shown.

Maybe the lawsuit will bring more attention to Plenser's work.
