In the wake of the new All Eyez On Me flick, so many people are trying to get paid from Pac’s likeness and image, even big time retailers that are already paid.
According to reports, entertainment photographer Danny Clinch is suing Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters for selling t-shirts that bear images of Tupac Shakur that Clinch shot in the 90s for Rolling Stone Magazine.
Amaru/AWA Merchandising went into a business venture with two other companies in order to wholesale the merchandise to retailers, however, Clinch n Ver granted permission to anyone to use his images. He’s seeking $600K in damages and the destruction of anymore merchandise.
“Defendants, without the authorization, knowledge or consent of the plaintiff, deliberately and willfully copied, displayed, distributed, and sold the copyrighted photographs on such infringing T-shirts and perhaps other apparel,” according to the lawsuit.
