Jay-Z And Roc Nation Sued Over Diamond Logo
Volcom Clothing Company Sues Roc Nation Over Diamond Logo
The company known as Volcom has filed a lawsuit against Jay-Z's Roc Nation label due to infringement based upon usage of their logo.
The diamond stone used in Roc Nation ads is similar to Volcom's logo which has been trademarked since 1991.
The complaint read that the logo used by Roc Nation in conjunction with the actual words was distinct, but when the symbol appears without "Roc Nation," this is where they feel the consumers may become misguided.
They are suing Jay's company for unfair competition, infringement, false designation of origin and other charges that they hope will stick.
Do they have a case?
