Scott Ian of Anthrax in Happy Hanukkah sweatshirt According to a report from Detroit Free Press, metal veterans Anthrax are being sued by a Detroit artist over the use of his design on the band's Hannukkah sweater. Artist and businessman Aaron Cummins says he created the original design for the "Ugly Hanukkah Sweater" in 2012 and has exclusive rights to its use. Cummins claims that the design was registered with the U.S. Copyright Office in 2013 and has been sold through his Detroit business, Wet House. Regardless, last fall Anthrax began selling a sweatshirt featuring the same design, albeit adorned with an Anthrax logo. Cummins has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit in U.S. District Court and is suing Anthrax and other parties for roughly $1 million in damages. Among those also named in the lawsuit are ecommerce website Rockabilia, where the sweatshirt has been for sale, and Global Merchandising Services, the merchandiser who supplied the apparel to said website.
