Justin Bieber’s new album “Justice” drops this weekend, but he’s already getting a cease-and-desist letter from a band saying he ripped off their logo. The band Justice claims they have been using the “Mark” (a ‘T’ that looks like a cross”) for 15 years, that’s Justin’s camp knew about it and knowingly had art created to duplicate it.

A March 10-dated letter from Justice’s counsel to Bieber’s lawyer and management reads in part:

“Your use of the Mark [the cross symbol] is illegal. You have not received permission from Justice to utilize the Mark. Moreover, Bieber’s work is in no way affiliated with, supported by, or sponsored by Justice. Such use of the Mark is not only illegal, but likely to deceive and confuse consumers. […] Through your illegal co-opting of the Mark, you are now subject to immediate legal action and damages including, but not limited to, punitive and injustice relief. […] Not only was Bieber’s team actually aware of Justice’s use of the Mark, they sought to use the same artist to essentially duplicate it for the Album. This is textbook bad faith and willful infringement.”
