Marlon Brando - Marlon Brando Bosses Settle Legal Spat With Harley-davidson

The trustees of Marlon Brando's estate have settled a legal spat with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company over a pair of boots.
Lawyers claimed officials at the motorcycle firm infringed the actor's publicity rights by selling a line of boots called The Brando.
Brando Enterprises bosses sued Harley-Davidson in May (11), claiming the footwear looked similar to the pair the movie icon's character wore in The Wild One.
The two parties reached a settlement on Monday (05Mar12), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Last month (Feb12), the trustees accepted more than $300,000 (£187,500) from a furniture company to end a legal fight over sofas sold under the late star's name.
Brando Enterprises executors sued Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. last year (11), accusing bosses of misappropriating the actor's name with couches and foot-stools known as the Brando.
