Eagles' Don Henley sues company over shirt ad

The Associated Press

BELLEVILLE, Wis. (AP) A founding member of the Eagles rock band is suing a Wisconsin clothing manufacturer over an ad he claims is a copyright violation.

Don Henley apparently isn't amused by the Duluth Trading Co. ad for its Henley shirts, which are men's pullovers. Duluth's ad encourages consumers to "Don a Henley and Take it easy," playing off the Eagles hit single "Take it Easy."

The State Journal (http://bit.ly/1sHCV4u ) reports a statement from a band spokesman says band members take offense when someone "tries to piggyback and capitalize" on their work.

Duluth Trading says it is aware of the claim, but doesn't comment on pending litigation. Duluth Trading has six stores in Wisconsin and Minnesota and sells primarily online and through catalogs.
