Oh No, Yoko Ono Got Sued

For copyright infringement.

On Friday March 22, 2013, Brooklyn designer Haleh Nematzadeh filed a suit against Yoko Ono in Brooklyn federal court for infringement of Nematzadeh’s designs. Nematzadeh claimed that Ono’s team saw her clothing designs, changed them slightly, and sold the styles online, passing off the designs as Ono’s own work.
