Pop star Rihanna has won a legal battle in London against fashion giant Topshop over the sale of a T-shirt bearing the R&B singer's image.
Topshop began selling an image of the performer on a T-shirt in 2012, with the approval of the photographer who took the image but not with the permission of Rihanna herself.
She sued Topshop's parent company, Arcadia, and the U.K. High Court found in her favor on Wednesday morning, although damages have not been settled.

Rihanna's lawyers argued that Topshop had misled customers into thinking that Rihanna had endorsed the use of her image on the T-shirt, leading to consumer confusion and damaging her reputation.
Simon Clark, head of intellectual property at Berwin Leighton Paisner, said that that was exactly what had led Justice Birss to find in favor of Rihanna.
