Robyn Rihanna Fenty v Arcadia t/a Topshop

22 January 2015

Martin Howe QC appeared for the claimants. The Court of Appeal dismissed Topshop’s appeal against the judgment of Birss J [2013] EWHC 2310 (Ch), who had held that Topshop in all the circumstances were liable for passing off by selling a T-shirt bearing an image of Rihanna which had been taken by a third party photographer when she was on a video shoot for the single “We Found Love” from her “Talk That Talk” album.
