Kanye West Accused of Stealing Camo Designs

Rapper / designer Kanye West accused of stealing a camouflage pattern for his clothing line...

From People Magazine
Jordan Outdoor Enterprises filed a lawsuit against the rapper-turned-designer’s label on Thursday, claiming that Yeezy’s camo print is an unauthorized copy of their Realtree collection.
In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Jordan states that a representative from Yeezy reached out to Jordan in March 2016 with inquiries about their camouflage design. However, communication between the brands ceased after the subject of licensing was brought up by Jordan, according to the lawsuit.
Jordan is also accusing Yeezy of removing its trademarks from the original camo print without official license or authorization prior to copying.
