A judge ruled Wednesday in favor of Condé Nast, Vogue magazine's publishing company, which filed a lawsuit against the artists for creating and distributing a "counterfeit" Vogue magazine to create buzz ahead of the album's release last week.
U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff issued a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction, instructing the rappers to remove the counterfeit magazine from all social media. The fake Vogue cover has since been taken down.
They are also "restrained from using, displaying, disseminating, or distributing" the counterfeit magazine in any way.
