Another victory for Marley family

Another victory for Marley family

The Marley family chalked up another victory when a United States court sided with them in a lawsuit filed against a company that sold shirts with the late Bob Marley’s image.

The estate of the Jamaican icon had filed a suit after low-cost T-shirts — featuring a photo of a speaking Marley next to the yellow, green and red colors associated with his Rastafarian faith — went on sale at Walmart, Target and other major US retailers.

In 2011 a Nevada jury awarded over $2 million in damages and legal fees to firms owned by Marley’s children that said they had lost an order to sell T-shirts at Walmart as the unauthorized rival was distributing a similar product.

The defendants lodge an appeal but that was rejected on Friday by a federal court which agreed that the non-family companies violated the 1946 Lanham Act, a key US law on copyright infringement.
