Hells Angels

Sues Young Jeezy Over Skull Logo

Hells No You Don't!!!

The Hells Angels don't need baseball bats and chains to protect their image -- all they need is a good lawyer, which is exactly what they got to sue rapper Young Jeezy's clothing line ... claiming Jeezy's company jacked their iconic Death Head logo.

The fabled motorcycle club filed the lawsuit against 8732 Apparel for essentially reprinting the Hells Angels logo on jackets and hats ... and selling them for a massive profit.

The 8732 design isn't an exact rip-off ... but Hells Angels claims it's close enough to confuse people.

HA claims 8732 has already earned substantial profits from the bootleg merch, and the motorcycle club wants every last cent of that money.

The club is now suing for unspecified damages. It also wants a judge to force 8732 to stop selling anything with an HA-looking logo on it. Calls to 8732 were not returned.

FYI, this isn't the first time the Hells Angels went ballistic over someone stealing their logo -- you'll recall, they sued Rob Dyrdek's clothing company and MTV last year for the same thing.

God Bless 'em! The Hells Angels obviously don't bow to the destructive notion of Generational Black Entitlement...

Squeeze as many $$MILLIONS$$ out of this Counterfeiting Urban Feral, as possible! Let's just hope that Obama and Holder refrain from interjecting their meddling Racist selves into the litigious mix...

Always funny to see an international criminal gang resorting to lawyers. Why I don't get is why they aren't all arrested for being part of an international criminal gang.

Way to close to the Original, some of the Biker community would know the difference but looks like it could be a "Supporter" patch....not good

It's not only a obvious copyright violation in which the HA'S stand to win, it could lead to a hostile encounter. Bad business decision.

The Angels, like many of the other motorcycle clubs, have support merchandise for sale and its bigbusiness. They are viewed differently because they are a motorcycle club. A great way to anger any business is to use a company trademark for the purpose of making profits, that’s exactly what Dillards has done. Sorry rapper Young Jeezy, no more bling for you for a while if this case goes a certain way. http://www.hupy.com/news/hells-angels-sue-over-trademark-infringement.cfm
