Artist Sues Amazon and 5 Others

The federal lawsuit accuses the companies of unauthorized use of Brent's art on their products.

Brent is suing Amazon because some of the products, such as hand painted tiles, were bought through the online retailer.

The lawsuit cites six Brent creations that were either copied or used without permission. In some cases he claims his name was removed from the art to avoid detection.

He's also suing "En Vogue Art on Tiles", "Continental Art Center", "Flame Tiles", "Home Decor Goods" and "Dynasty Tile".

Brent is seeking more than 75-thousand dollars in unspecified damages, an injunction against further sales, and seizure of the illegal items.
