Puffy Receives Punishment for Shady Dealings

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Diddy pretty much admits to being guilty by signing a settlement for copyright infringement of Louis Vuitton products:

Sean “Diddy” Combs, CEO of Bad Boy label, has signed a settlement with bag maker, Louis Vuitton—a company that filed a lawsuit against Combs for copyright infringement of LV products.

The case centered on the product placements of LV products on Danity Kane videos and advertisements. Danity Kane is a hip-hop group that is produced by Combs’ Bad Boy Records. LV said that these placements were unauthorized and breached copyright infringement laws.

In the legal papers, which were filed in Paris last August, Combs was accused of using the LV logo in two Danity Kane music videos, as well as in the packaging photos of the group’s 2006 album.

Combs and LV reached a settlement last Thursday. “Diddy” agreed to remove all visual references and trademarks from future releases of the LV products in the video. As of press time, the financial details of the agreement have not been disclosed.

While similar incidents will no longer be happen for Bad Boy Records, the company will have to find new bands to produce; Since Danity Kane, composed of Aubrey, Aundrea, D.Woods, Dawn, and Shannon, recently disbanded.

We thought Sean was a tad brighter than that. What the hell made him think he could get away with that type of shyte in the first place? Trifling.

    @ De’Vincent

    It is so nice to see the love you have for the lord in your writing. I too love the lord me and my husband live for him everything. Everyone thinks it’s a joke, but it is not. it is good to see there is more people out there who love the lord and are willing to spread his word no matter what other people think. They are haters and the devil and want to see you fall like them. Never let anyone have power over you soul or let them get in the way of your blessing and that is a spot with the lord in heaven. AMEN to you young brother. People better wake up.

  • De'Vincent

    @ Oh Yeah – Thanks! I try to post the Word on as many articles as I can on this website. If you’re going to be on a website, why not spread the Word? People need it there too! I just wanna see people saved. I don’t want to see people in their sins die and go to hell. People need to hear the gospel. And I think as Christians sometimes we spend too much of our time arguing and debating over meaningless things instead of spreading the gospel. And that’s what I’m here for.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE & SUPPORT!!!

  • Oh yeah

    @ De’Vincent

    No problem. The more you spread the word the more souls of people you can help save. The lord wants us to spread his word even if there are people who don’t want to hear it. GOD WILL BLESS YOU. Keep on with the word it’s the only thing that will save us in these final days. AMEN God bless you!

  • And.....(with 5 dots)

    Puffy is always being sued for copyright infringments and other shenanigans, so its nothing new. Tyson Beckford had to hit him up for using his image on Sean Johns collections without paying him.

    whatever LV, rap music made you fly. If all rap started dissing LV they would be singing a different tune.

  • Mrs. Rance

    I’m confused. It sounds like he provided free advertising for them. What’s the problem with that? On the other hand considering how he robbed Danity Kane blind at least someone is getting paid beside Diddy who keeps making goobs and gobs of money even though Bad Boy has not one relevant act on it’s roster.

  • Frankie

    @ Vicent

    I agree with you 100% I think you should create a blog.

  • laquizzay

    de’vincent, you should get your own blog and praise the Lord! 🙂

  • chrissy

    DIDDY IS A THIEF AND A NO GOOD SCAMP…HE HAS THOSE POOR BOYS IN DAY 26 STARVING AND CANNOT FEED THEIR FAMILIES WHILE HE BUYS HOUSE AFTER HOUSE AND BUY MORE JEWELRY AND CARS…

    THIS MAN IS NO GOOD….AND AN EMBARRASSMENT TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY, WITH THREE DIFFERENT CHILDREN MOTHERS WITH 5 KIDS AND NOT MARRIED TO ANY OF THEM….

    WHEN HE LOOK AT BARACK HE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF.

  • enlight

    OK, anybody in the bizz should know better than to mess with LV! They absolutely DO NOT PLAY about their ish, no matter who you are! They will vehemently go after anyone who uses or copies their stuff, and Puff shouldve known better. And LV doesnt need or depend on rap/r&b to stay afloat, they’ve done that just fine for YEARS.

  • Confused

    @De’Vincent

    I don’t find this to be a particularly “Godly” site…actually quite secular, why or how you know about it baffles me. Maybe instead of posting these ridiculously long posts you should live as an example and let the Lord call His lambs to you!

  • JC o' B'klyn

    Why didn’t Diddy just utilize Sean John’s product, which would in turn allow him to kill many birds with a single? Dum’ ass
