For those of you who haven’t been following this:
Here’s a crash course(albeit a little crude):
She painted Simple Living, (2007) that depicted a starving black child carrying an Louis Vuitton (LV) bag and a Chihuahua. It was a huge success and the associated merchandise sold extremely well with all profits going to help the organization Divest for .
She appeared to have run out of money to pay her attorneys who were fighting LV, so stopped selling the merchandise.
She was then involved in a tragic accident that left her out of action for a while.
It featured the boy with the LV bag and LV sued her again.
To cut the story short, Plesner won! (English judgement here Danish here) The court held that Plesner’s right of artistic freedom of expression trumped Vuitton’s exclusive rights in the Community design (para. 4.8).
I wish there were more judgements as sensible as this (and more artists who supported such worthy causes).
This canine wishes her all the very best in her activism and revolutionary painting!
