The famous actor and director, Woody Allen, is suing American Apparel for more than $10m (£5m) after the US clothing company allegedly used his image on advertisements without permission.

According to the Guardian newspaper:

American Apparel claimed “the image of Allen dressed as a Hassidic character alongside Yiddish text was meant strictly as a social parody”. It added that the company sometimes used billboards “for non-commercial social and political commentary.”

Indigo Clothing offer the full range of American Apparel items and t-shirts including their organic cotton collection, which can be customised with your logo or design.

    This is an obvious parody of a public figure. Social commentary also. All of that is protected by the first amendment.
