Billabong Baffled By Frampton Lawsuit

LATEST: Australian surf clothing giant BILLABONG are baffled by veteran rocker PETER FRAMPTON's lawsuit against them over their new bathing suit line FRAMPTON.

The Aussie firm are about to launch their swimsuit, which bears the message "Baby, I Love Your Waves" in reference to his hit 1970s song BABY, I LOVE YOU WAY, and an image of the British singer.

Frampton is seeking unspecified damages in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles this week (begs19JUL04).

However Billabong said they was puzzled by the lawsuit as they had been in "amicable" discussions with Frampton since April (04).

The company's spokesman says, "The product referred to in the action has been out of production and distribution for some time and the escalation of the action is surprising given the discussions to date."
