Rihanna wins Topshop legal battle

Rihanna has won a long-running legal fight with Topshop.

As previously reported, the retailer were ordered in 2013 to stop selling t-shirts with the singer's image printed on them.

It was the result of a $5m (£3.3m) lawsuit launched by Rihanna over t-shirts which had an unauthorised photo of her taken by a photographer at a videoshoot in 2011.

Today (January 22) it was confirmed at the Court of Appeal in London that Topshop's ban has been upheld.

Three judges surmised that using the image without Rihanna's consent was in effect "passing off".

The legal team judged that some fans may have been duped into thinking the t-shirt was an official link-up between Topshop and Rihanna.
