Quick! To The Bat Kippot!

Last week, Bleeding Cool ran the news that Marvel had sued a small shop in Israel over selling Spider-Man kippots. Now it seems that Warners has followed suit. With their own suit.

And they have targeted the same store on Ben-Yehuda Street in Jerusalem as Marvel did, over what they claim as an infringement of the Batman trademark. The Kippa Man store is the best known of these small shops that sell knock-off trademarked Jewish paraphernalia from China.

And it’s the law firm of Ivtsan, Netzer, Wolecki & Co. of Tel Aviv that is dealing with both cases, asking for twenty five thousand dollars each in damages, enough to close the store down.

You know, I wonder if Warner could bring a suit against Gotham police department, I bet they never licensed the trademark image use of that Bat Signal…
