Bust The Bootleggers
Nowadays there are so many shops producing bootleg products and merch, especially out of the country. Right now Nipsey Hussle’s Estate is looking to stop counterfeit products from being sold with Nipsey’s brand on it.
According to TMZ Samiel Asghedom, the rapper’s brother recently filed suit for not just one but multiple establishments that Nipsey’s estate is suspecting of selling knock-off merch.
Knock-Off Nipsey Merch
The issue is most of these shops are in a completely different country which is China, and most of these shops are using multiple or different domains to leave no pieces behind.
The lawsuit mentions there are multiple obvious suggesting signs of these connected counterfeit shops such as silly spelling errors, similar ads and the list goes on.
So what is the estate asking the judge for, you may ask?
Nipsey Hussle’s estate has every right to constrain these frauds into handing over their domains. Every article of clothing, every product, everything with Nipsey’s famous logo on it that has been sold profits will be rightfully given back.
It’s either that or the estate is asking for $2 million per infraction.
Hopefully, this suit will bust all to bootleggers, and Nipsey’s merch is to only be sold from places that have been given the right to.
