Pop star Rihanna has won a legal battle with high street store Topshop over a T-shirt with her image.
In an important ruling on celebrity “image rights”, the Court of Appeal upheld a ban on the store selling a Rihanna “tank” sleeveless T-shirt without her permission.

Three appeal judges agreed with an earlier High Court ruling that marketing the fashion item without the 26-year-old singer’s approval amounts to “passing off”, a term used to enforce unregistered trademark rights.
