Rihanna - Rihanna Wins Topshop Ban

Pop star Rihanna has won a permanent ban against a U.K. clothing chain she sued for selling T-shirts emblazoned with her image.

The singer took Topshop bosses to court over their 'Rihanna Tank', which featured a snap taken by a freelance photographer without her permission on the set of her We Found Love music video in 2011.

In the latest ruling on Wednesday (25Sep13), the Umbrella hitmaker was granted an injunction preventing Topshop from using her image on products in the future.

Topshop chiefs were also ordered to pay Rihanna's estimated $1.4 million (£919,000) legal fees, and told they must pay $300,000 (£200,000) of the costs within 14 days - but the judge gave brand bosses permission to appeal against the costs order.

In July (13), Rihanna won her battle against Topshop after Mr Justice Birss ruled in her favour, insisting the fashion firm had 'passed off' the garments as endorsed T-shirts.
