Beyonce Goes After BootleggersPublished by Dior Noir on Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 3:00 pm.
This must just be the week of frivolous lawsuits!
Beyonce has filed a federal lawsuit in New York against a group of people who are selling bootleg copies of her CDs and other knock-off merchandise at her concerts around the world.
According to TMZ, her legal team hasn’t been able to track down exactly who’s selling the unauthorized goods (how you sue an unknown person is a mystery to me), but they’re anticipating the sales continuing at Bey’s upcoming Madison Square Garden concerts on June 21st and 22nd so they’re trying to get a judge to rule the merch illegal.
Good luck with that!
Now I love Beyonce so I’m not going to go in on her, but obviously Sasha Fierce’s lace front is on too tight! Is it really going to hurt her pockets if someone gets a CD or T-shirt from the hustle man for 5 dollars? (I’ll be the first to admit I copped the latest album off of 125th Street in Harlem and low key — after I listened to it I wished I would’ve saved that change and downloaded it online! Don’t come after me Papa Knowles!)
Whatever, all I know is Bey can’t be that concerned with knock-offs. Have you seen or heard her concert tour opening act Richgirl?
From what I’ve heard so far they sound an awful lot like Destiny’s Child and group member Brave looks like she’s swagger jacking Mrs. Carter (her other group members have even said she has “multiple personalities”!). Not hating, I’m just saying.
