As previously reported, Nirvana filed a lawsuit against Marc Jacobs for ripping off their “smiley face” logo and now the fashion brand has officially responded. According to Billboard, the designer’s lawyers are arguing that the band does not own the copyright for the logo and that there are pronounced differences between the designs. The suit was originally filed in response to a shirt in Marc Jacobs’ “Bootleg Redux Grunge” product line, which features the squiggly face with the X’s switched out for the letters “M” and “J.” The band’s camp says they have had a trademark for the logo since 1992 and and that the shirt is a “blatant ripoff.”
