  • For you legal-eagles or controversy buffs (or PR folks, reputation managers and marketers) Jeremiah Owyang has an interesting commentary on the current brouhaha over a socially-conscious t-shirt designer and Louis Vuitton handbags.

    Louis Vuitton Darfur

    26 year old Nadia Plesner faces legal action by Louis Vuitton for using their product's likeness in an anti-genocide awareness campaign. The image reflects Plesner's concern that Paris Hilton's accessories are more newsworthy than the suffering of our fellow man in Darfur. Since Louis Vuitton doesn't really have anything to do with the situation, it feels this "brand-jacking" must be countered.

    Owyang outlines four options LV has in dealing with this problem, and has solicited his Twitter followers to weigh in with their opinions. Interesting stuff.
