"In April 2008, Vuitton forced the Parisian boutique Colette to close a six-day window installation after five days by threatening to sue Cyril Duval, a French conceptual artist who works under the name Item Idem, for displaying a sculpture of a suit of armor made from multiple fake Vuitton bags. Again, the company claimed that the artwork tacitly endorsed the counterfeit market."
