LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) The Chainsmokers are being sued by clothier Sick Boy over the use of the words “sick boy” on T-shirts.
The Chainsmokers have a song called “Sick Boy” and are brandishing T-shirts and sweatshirts with those words online. However, Sick Boy, the brand, claims the words are trademarked since 2001 and that Guns N’ Roses, Van Halen, Ratt Motley Cure and Quiet Riot have all worn gear with their moniker, according to a lawsuit obtained by The Blast.
The company also claims it has sent cease and desist letters to the band and to Live Nation, which runs the online marketplace where the T-shirts are sold but nothing has changed.
Sick Boy claims it has been “deprived of sales of products and services and has suffered a diminution of the value” of its brand and has suffered “irreparable harm” by the alleged infringement, according to The Blast.
