Gary Shaffer, owner of Back-Lite, a company that puts glowing transparencies on the back of jackets (classy!), is being sued for $11 million after wantonly accepting a request to put a Red Hot Chili Peppers logo on one of his jackets. While it was a solitary request that was done a “promotional item” and without charge, Brava International, which owns the RHCP emblem, claims Shaffer could have “made over a million dollars in profits.” If Brava’s interested, I know a few people who drew RHCP logos on their backpacks in the late ’90s. If the statute of limitations hasn’t passed on that, how about a finder’s fee? [Rolling Stone]
