Topshop have stopped selling a jacket that features Against Me!’s logo – along with the Vandals, and various other punk “slogans” – without permission, after the band complained.
Laura Jane Grace highlighted the issue at the weekend, saying: “Hey @Topshop, you’re selling a $700 leather jacket with my bands name on it and you have no permission. Not cool.”
“Its a legal trademark that I own,” she continued, “just like you can’t sell shirts that say ‘the Beatles’.”
Shortly after, Topshop responded: “Hi there, we’re looking into this. We have removed the jacket from our website & are currently withdrawing from stores.”
You can find Against Me! on the cover of September’s Upset – pick up your copy here. It also features Taking Back Sunday, Beach Slang, Every Time I Die, Young Guns, Touché Amoré and loads more.
