Aretha Franklin’s Milliner Sues Knockoff Milliners

Luke Song, the milliner who made Aretha's famous Inauguration hat, is suing competitors that ripped off his design. Song claims in a complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court that his "lavish and ornate" hat "gained instantaneous fame and notoriety, attracting much more media attention than even Aretha Franklin's performance itself." The complaint also includes a handy illustrated guide of the knockoffs. [Smoking Gun via Jezebel]
