NY Governor Warns Khloe Kardashian for Selling Rich Soil T-Shirts


Khloe Kardashian


Governor Andrew Cuomo asks the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star to stop selling T-shirts with design that looks too similar to NY's Department of Agriculture's logo.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo threatens to sue Rich Soil, a clothing company that Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom run. NY Daily News reports that Cuomo accuses the company of violating copyright law as it sells T-shirts with an image that resembles "Pride of New York" logo used by Department of Agriculture of New York.

On Friday, May 17, Susan Rosenthal, a lawyer for the Department of Agriculture, sent a letter addressed to Rich Soil. "The State of New York has invested substantial time, effort and resources creating the respect and goodwill associated with the trademark," she stated in the letter.

Rosenthal also asked the company to immediately stop selling the T-shirts featuring the logo and provide information of how much money the company had made from selling the items. The lawyer said New York would take legal action if the company ignored the given warn.

Cuomo declined to comment on the news. At a news conference on Monday, May 20, he said, "I wish I could [comment] in some ways because it would at least be a little more interesting than what I normally do." At the same occasion, State Agriculture Commissioner Darrel Aubertine also took a jab at Kardashian, saying that the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star wasn't suitable for the logo because, " 'Pride of New York' is a good logo."
