Drake and 21 Savage Ordered To Cease Distribution Of Their Fake Vogue Magazine Cover
Drake and 21 Savage have been ordered by a judge on Wednesday (Nov.9) to cease using their fake Vogue magazine cover for promotional purposes for their joint album Her Loss, according to USA Today.
U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff has issued a temporary order and a preliminary order injunction, enforcing for the rappers to remove the counterfeit magazine from all social media accounts.
The duo is also "restrained from using, displaying, disseminating, or distributing" the counterfeit magazine. The ruling states the artists are "confusing customers about the origin, sponsorship, or approval" of the cover and are "misleading consumers to believe that these are genuine and authentic materials associated with Condé Nast and Vogue magazine."

"Neither Condé Nast nor Anna Wintour authorized the creation of the counterfeit magazine," the complaint read.
The complaint said that Hiltzick Strategies, a public relations firm listed as a defendant, emailed Condé Nast and several other recipients on Oct. 30 saying that the fake magazines would be distributed in major cities by street teams. Condé Nast replied stating that the company didn't authorize the distribution and sent the PR firm a cease and desist for the "unauthorized use of the Vogue trademark."
