It is very weird that they are only suing for 25k, but if they were just out to get her, they would sue for a heck of a lot more. Clearly, they just want some vindication. It would be very simple for Heidi to just pay a settlement and create some new designs. I am sure they will sell well. You can sell anything on QVC.

Well I know in small claims court the amount must be "under 25K"
I think they said damages in "excess of 25K" meaning it may get larger and they had to not file in small claims (that would be so dumb anyway -small claims)

I think they are only suing for $25k because they really can't win and they want to tarnish her image. They probably also waited a long time because they wanted to find an instance of where copyright looks somewhat apparent. They probably have one. That being said seeing how the clover is a very recognizable symbol like a mouse Van Cleef doesn't stand much of a chance unless they copyrighted the Clover for Jewelry which I am sure they didn't do. Because if they had they would have sued a long time ago.

People should just leave the designing to the designers better then pasting your name on something then getting sued. *cough*

Muawad issued a statement:
"We believe this claim has no merit. It's clear that shapes like clovers, hearts, crosses, etc, are universal symbols and are commonly used in jewelry."
"Heidi has been wearing her pieces on Project Runway and we've seen them become quite popular," he added, "The clover has always been in fashion and you can see that many other luxury jewelry houses have their own interpretations of this wonderful shape such as Louis Vuitton and Chopard. "

I really like Heidi but it's about time VCA sued! I agree that the clover design has been used a lot over the years but she clearly has KO the VCA alhambra line.
