Businessman and rapper, Jay Z and his Rocawear clothing company make and sell a shirt with the inscription ‘hoodlove’ written on it. However, it is clear that, the word(s) Hoodlove is actually a trademark of another company.
Jay Z and Rocawear have no business plastering the phrase “Hood Love” all over t-shirts … so says the pissed off company that owns the phrase and is now suing the pants off Jigga’s clothing label. HoodLove, LLC — a for-profit company dedicated to improving poverty stricken communities — filed the lawsuit against ROC Apparel Group earlier this month … over one specific shirt in the Rocawear line, which reads ‘HoodLove’ in giant letters. HoodLove says it’s owned the trademark since 2006 — and claims Jay’s company came along and started making a buck … confusing the public, and trading off their good name. It’s not clear how much cash Rocawear’s made off the shirts, but HoodLove is suing for the profits … and also wants the apparel yanked from stores.
