Evanston Store Sues The Gap Over T-Shirt Design

CHICAGO (CBS) – An Evanston store is taking on a clothing giant, accusing the Gap of swiping one of its designs.

In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Chicago Friday, Fooey, Inc claims that the Gap started selling a shirt two years ago featuring a design similar to one on a polo shirt Fooey sold in its store in 2005.

The suit says the shirt’s design, with a paper airplane on the front and instructions on how to make a paper airplane on the back was copyrighted this year.

The suit seeks an unspecified amount of money along with attorney’s fees.

So far, no comment from the Gap.
