Louis Vuitton vs. Darfur
Danish artist Nadia Plesner is getting the business from Louis Vuitton. The artist is being sued by the French fashion designer and leather goods company for use of their name and likeness. Plesner, who runs the Simply Living campaign in support of the victims of Darfur, sells products with the image of a naked child carrying a Louis Vuitton-like bag in one arm and a chihuahua dog on the other-a la Paris Hilton-to benefit the Divest for Darfur organization.
