The lawsuit involves the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle Club suing a fashion design company, for selling clothing bearing the Hell’s Angels’ signature “death head” symbol in high-end department stores, such as Saks Fifth Ave. The classic death head design was apparently plastered on purses, scarves and dresses, and marketed to rich old ladies. Needless to say, the Hell’s Angels were not amused. While the thought of a 1%er club’s symbol on department-store clothing seems ridiculous, this case actually raises serious questions regarding motorcycle clubs’ intellectual property rights. No club wants their treasured symbols, which are often hard-earned with blood, sweat and tears, to be commercialized and cheapened in such a way. We’ll keep you posted as this case progresses. Regardless of club affiliation, everybody should be rooting for the Red and White on this one.
