Rihanna, Puma Sued For Copyright Infringement Over “FU” Logo

October 17, 2018 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Rihanna and Puma have been sued over the pop singer’s “F.U.” logo for her clothing business. TMZ reports that Freedom United Clothing filed suit against the parties claiming that they own the trademark to “FU” for clothing purposes.

Rihanna’s “F.U.” is meant to stand for “Fenty University,” using her last name. Of course, “FU” means something else in common parlance (and we don’t mean the algebraic term).

The lasuit claims that Rihanna was aware of the existing logo, noting she was wearing it via one of Freedom United’s hoodies in 2014. The company has previously sent Puma and Rihanna a cease and desist letter. The company is asking for damages as well as for an order prohibiting future sales.
