Do These Boots Look Like Marlon Brando? His Estate Seems To Think So

from the likeness? dept

In the grand tradition of the estate of Humphrey Bogart suing over a couch, the estate of Marlon Brando is suing Harley Davidson, claiming that Harley's new "Brando" boots misappropriate the actor's "likeness." I dunno, what do you think:
Of course, it's true that Harley Davidson has its own history of being massively overprotective when it comes to its own trademarks and such, but I'm not sure that justifies a silly and pointless lawsuit over these boots.

    One bitch suing another bitch, as I do not partake of ethers products I hope they sue the shit out of each other. Tax a 750cc bike, fuck you assholes.
