Barbara Kruger Calls Out Supreme

May 04, 2013 @ 17:26:54
I'm sure most of you know by now that Supreme is suing the owner of MOB for a cool $10 million. Not sure if you guys saw this article yet, but Barbara Kruger call outs Supreme. I swear every brand that Supreme has ripped off should all band together and sue the hell out of Supreme.

"a ridiculous clusterfuck of uncool jokers"

pretty sure Louis was the only brand to ever care about that shit. Jebbia already said that if it was a one-off shirt, it would've been fine, but the bitch used that Supremebitch shit as the backbone of her whole company. Preme doesn't rip off the same brand every season, that's why it's different than what MOB did. I mean look at this shit










Supreme took a concept that Kruger created and ran with it. MOB made a direct parody of Supreme (WHICH IS WHY YOU CAN'T USE THE KRUGER EXCUSE LIKE PEOPLE DO SO OFTEN) and kept going with it 10 years later.

supreme takes the L for thinking something they jacked is now their property, so they can sue others who try to do the same to them

mttm takes the L for running the supreme bitch design into the ground and then some

hot water

who cares what Barbra Kruger thinks, it's not like she had a copyright on using Futura bold Italic.

supreme on the other hand, owns the rights to the word supreme in a red rectangle.

Supreme is wack as fuck anyway

Might as well call this the Supreme Hate thread. Fuck Barbara Kruger, building her entire brand off of other brands' ideas and acting like it's part of some punk rock agenda. This bitch sold her shit to Karmaloop, that nullifies any argument she could possibly make. Oh yeah, and I heard she was on that millionaire match maker show. She lost.

Edit: Barbara Kruger does not own MTTM. Still, fuck that cunt

When Supreme jacks shit from other brands at least they do it with style and usually with a message behind it. Brands that jack Supreme do it cuz they know the shit will sell and not everybody can get ahold of or afford supreme items.

I call bullshit that Kruger bothered to send complex an email about this shit. She's pushing nearly 70 years now, the hell does she care how people use Futura font in a red box. complex prolly just made the word doc themselves.

I'm curious as to why James Jebbia waited so long to sue MOB. I mean he gave MOB permission to make those "supreme bitch" shirts and accessories. If he wanted them to stop he could have just filed cease and desist, or just ask her to stop, but instead he waited 8 years.

A simple math problem solves your question:

Nothing/Nothing= ?

She didn't make any money before. You were gonna sue her for chump change? No you are gonna wait till you can make some cash. I like some Supreme items but I don't dickride like that. He was a smart business man in this case.

^So now it seems like James only let her use the logo so he could flip it around many years later and sue her.

You can't determine causation like that son. Somebody leaked some legal documents directly relating to this case, theyre fucking hilarious to read.

The lawsuit was because of the the trademark she tried to file. Dumb bitch thought she'd try making supreme for girls an honest, legal business venture.

Lol I had no idea the whole "Supreme bitch" thing was actually part of a brand. I thought it was like a parody shit that someone was selling off their bigcartel website. I had no idea who married to the mob was until I heard of this.

lol same, the tshirts screen print is so horrible i always thought it was just more horrid fakes like the shoebox sized box logos

My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious

May 05, 2013 @ 03:17:23
Does Supreme pay for copyrights to use other logos?

I always wanted to know, but I assumed it was no.
