Ed Hardy Sues Christian Audigier

Ed Hardy filed a $100 million lawsuit Monday against Christian Audigier for trademark infringement and breach of contract, among other things.

Apparently Hardy wasn’t getting all his royalties, and Audigier’s own clothing line used Hardy’s artwork without permission.

Why anyone would want the rights to that stuff, I’ll never know.

    HARDY WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE SIGNED THE COPYRIGHTS TO HIS TATOOS TO C.A. HARDY'S SITUATION WOULD BE HOW MUCH OF HIS RIGHTS TO HIS TATOOS DID HE SIGN AWAY. C.A HAS BEEN HANDLING THE SITUATION AS IF HE AND HARDY HAS BEEN TOGETHER ALL ALONG SELLING MERCHANDIZE. HARDY BEING A GREAT TATOO ARTIST SHOULD HAVE BEEN MAKING NEW TATOOS AND STARTING UP A NEW BUSINESS. THE WAY IT STANDS NO ONE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT KIND OF CONTRACT HARDY AND AUDIGIER CREATED. THIS ENTIRE SITUTION IS STRANGE. AUDIGIER HAD BEEN STEALING MARC JACOBS HANDBAGS DESIGNS, AND HAVE BEEN REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN A UNDERCOVER RACIST BY NOT FEATURING ANY BLACK PEOPLE IN ANY OF THE TATOOS. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE WIERD AND UNFORTUNATE SITUATION THAT NO ONE SEEMS TO REALLY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING ON. THE MAJORITY OF THE PUBLIC BELIEVED THAT ED HARDY WAS IN CONTROL OF HIS OWN ART AND WAS THE ONE BEHIND ALL THE MARKETING OF ALL THIS MERCHANDIZE. IT ALL JUST SEEMS LIKE ONE BIG CONSPIRACY !

    I suppose because Ed has done more for the tattoo industry than about anyone else I can think of. He is a talented artist, tattooer and businessman.
