Want to sell a T-shirt featuring the Man in Black? You'd better have permission!
The country music legend filed a lawsuit against the Urban Outfitters retailer Monday (April 23), claiming the clothing chain reproduced a 1969 image of Johnny without permission and is using it on T-shirts.
The photographer who took the famous photo, Jim Marshall (who's worked with Johnny for many years), is also a plaintiff in the suit.
Johnny and Jim are alleging copyright infringement, among other things, and want the company to stop making and selling the shirts.
They're also asking for already-earned profits, lawyers fees and punitive damages.
