RJ Williams

RJ Williams, whose pieces have hung in the corridors of the Art Gallery of NSW and Museum of Contemporary Art, is taking legal action against US singer Madonna over what he claims is a breach of copyright.
The 34-year-old says the "M" symbol used on the singer's Truth or Dare perfume, bears too much of a resemblance to the symbol he has been painting and using on clothing for ten years and which he trademarked in 2011.
"Friends from all over the world have been calling me upon seeing the Truth or Dare by Madonna campaign to express their disgust and support," Mr Williams told The Sunday Telegraph.
"It's about my integrity as an artist.
"I do not think it should be able to be used by a giant cosmetics company."
Mr Williams sent a legal letter to Madonna's agent, Guy Oseary, requesting the star immediately stop infringing his copyright, provide him with all profits made so far and enter into a licence with him for future use of the symbol.
