Ivanka Trump Sued By Aquazurra For Copying Their Shoe Design

Ivanka Trump sued by Aquazurra for shoe knockoff.

Like father, like daughter!

Donald Trump is no stranger to lawsuits, and now Ivanka Trump can claim the same! How exciting.

The businesswoman is being sued by Aquazurra for copying their "Wild Thing" tasseled sandal down to even minor details. However, it should be noted that fashion designs are not protected by copyright law, which makes it easy for knockoffs to go without being challenged in the marketplace.

That's probably why Ivanka & Co. weren't too worried when they totally copied the Aquazurra shoe!

Note the similarities between Ivanka's "Hettie" sandal on the left and the "Wild Thing" shoe on the right (below):

Cirque Du Soleil Is Suing Justin Timberlake For Ripping Off Their Music — Yes, MUSIC!

Fun Fact: Apparently Cirque du Soleil makes music.

Did anyone know Cirque du Soleil even made music?! Well, Justin Timberlake sure does!

On Thursday, the popular circus sued the soulful singer for copyright infringement, claiming a track off the artist's 20/20 album sampled one of their songs without permission!

We're a little confused as to why this complaint is just getting filed now, since that album dropped back in 2013, but we digress.

The Canadian company took their grievance to New York federal court, saying in the legal papers that JT's number Don't Hold the Wall sampled their tune Steel Dream, from their 1997 album QUIDAM.

Yes, album! Cirque du Soleil's actually released a BUNCH of records over the years, believe it or not!

But anyway, the entertainment corporation is suing the famous father, his producer Timbaland, and Sony Music Entertainment for $800,000 worth in damages!

Ch-ch-check out the two songs (below) and let us know in the comments if U think the circus is just trying to make a quick buck, or if this is a classic case of copyright!

Jeremy Scott & Moschino Will Go To Court For Copyright Infringement Against Graffiti Artist Rime

Jeremy Scott copyright lawsuit is going forward.

Bad news for Jeremy Scott.

Reports say a California District Court judge has given street artist Joseph Tierney, AKA Rime, the go-ahead to take his copyright lawsuit against the designer to the next level.

Tierney has accused Scott of copying his famous "Vandal Eyes" mural in Detroit and putting it on clothing from the Moschino A/W 2015 collection.

The dress accused of bearing Rime's art was worn by Gigi Hadid on the runway and by Katy Perry at the Met Gala in May. A blazer worn by Scott at the Met Ball also appeared to have elements of Rime's work.

In October 2015, Scott filed a declaration to strike Rime's complaint, stating that it was a graphic artist in the company's employ who selected that particular print for the clothing in question, and that Scott himself did not design it.

The motion to strike was denied, and the next court date is scheduled for May 23, 2016.

We'll keep you updated with new info as it becomes available.
