There is no Place for Nirvana in Dante’s Circles of Upper Hell

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned if your name is Jocelyn Susan Bundy. She is suing Nirvana LLCLive Nation Merchandise LLC and its Merch Traffic LLC unit, along with Silva Artist Management LLC, saying NIRVANA had been using her grandfather C.W. Scott-Giles drawing since 1997 on shirts, mugs, vinyl records, and other merchandise sold at stores including WalmartH&M and Hot Topic. The drawing depicts Dante‘s circles of Upper Hell. Bundy’s complaint claims that Nirvana has “routinely made false claims of ownership” by placing copyright notices in its name on allegedly infringing merchandise featuring the illustration.
