'Twilight' Studio Files Lawsuit Against Makers of 'Bella Jacket'

It looks like trendy clothing retailer BB Dakota is running out of luck.
The label scored an accidental hit when Twilight costume designer Wendy Chuck outfitted the saga's lead, Kristen Stewart, in a blue cotton canvas jacket she picked up at Nordstrom. The enterprising marketing team at BB Dakota was quick to capitalize on the exposure, touting the jacket on its website with the pitch, "Bella Swann [sic] wears this jacket in Twilight and scores the hottest vampire in high school, and so can you!"

Apparently Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the overwhelmingly successful film franchise, isn't having any of the commando marketing. On Friday, the studio reportedly filed a lawsuit against BB Dakota for copyright and trademark infringement. If Summit has its way, BB Dakota will not only be prevented from selling the jacket—it will also have to submit all jackets to Summit for "destruction." Harsh.

Twilight fans who still haven't nabbed the jacket are in luck—it is still available on Amazon and at Fred Flare. Nab it while you still can!


This makes me wonder how many jackets have been sold? Who out there has one?

we must be really crazy if we were to buy a jacket thinking about getting a boy...better to copy a style than that!

With all the money Summit has they should be ashamed! It should be thought as an honor and hey didn't someone just buy it off the nordstrom rack anyway?

Ya know I love the twilight movies but Summit just seems incredibly money grubbing first Rachelle then kellan and Ashley and now this?! What are they going to do next sue Forks for using twilight as a tourist draw?

I'm not worried....the only crime is if someone copyrighted the style. if worst comes to worst the only thing they(the clothing company) will have to do is take away the quote about Bella

maybe Summit is forgetting something... and maybe Stephenie Meyer can remind it... why the fanfiction writer need to make a disclaimer in every story they wrote, and Summit just walk around the world looking for someone or something to give them money... without the world Stephenie Meyer create, Summit is nothing.
