Drake is calling a jeweler’s lawsuit bogus, saying he can’t rip off a design that was created over 5,000 years ago.
New York jeweler Michael Raphael of Baden Baden, Inc. claims he created a $50K diamond studded platinum owl pendant for Drake … based on a logo he’s been using for years. The jeweler claimed Drizzy then knocked off replicas of the pendant … thus the lawsuit.
In his legal docs, Drake says the jeweler doesn’t own the design — pharaohs do … because it’s based on an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph — a symbol that may be more than 5,000 years old.
Drake says the owl hieroglyph — a pictographic symbol for the letter ‘M’ — can’t be copyrighted … so the jeweler’s case is bogus.
