Jay Z is being sued by a company that claims it owns the rights to the Roc Nation logo and that the rap mogul has been plastering the signature paper plane image on Major League Baseball merchandise without its permission.
TMZ reported Monday that Iconix says it paid $204 million for the logo and can control when it appears on merchandise, including the MLB apparel it has recently graced. TMZ noted Iconix is suing Roc Nation, New Era, Lids and the San Francisco Giants in addition to the rapper and MLB.
The company is suing all of the companies for at least $10 million and other damages, but who knows what they’ll end up getting. Jay Z has yet to comment on the subject matter, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted if he does.
