Diane Von Furstenberg Sues Target For Copyright Infringement

Wrap-dress designer extraordinaire Diane Von Furstenberg has sued Target, claiming the retailer is selling dresses with a print that is nearly identical to its “spotted frog design.”

“Defendants’ infringing dresses are ‘wrap’ dresses made of materials designed to look like silk jersey, a style consumers and the general public have come to associate with DVF,” the complaint said.

Target stopped selling the dresses on its Web site on January 23 after the designer sent it a notice about it, according to the complaint, but the dresses are still available in Target stores.

We’d love to write the rest of this post, but we’re going to Target now. Bye.
