Sometimes taking inspiration from a highly recognizable logo crosses the line between homage and biting, or at least that's what the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club thought when they saw Young Jeezy's 8732 Apparel. Jeezy's clothing line features a logo that was obviously ripped from the Hell's Angels from the styling, the typeface, and the overall look. The words have changed and the biker skull with wings is now a black face with wings, but according to TMZ it's still close enough that the club is "suing for unspecified damages" because the logo could "confuse people." 

The Hells Angels also sued Rob Dyrdek and MTV for the exact same offense, so if you're going to bite a logo make sure it's not theirs.
