Hollywood veteran Peter Fonda has taken legal action against Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana over a T-shirt featuring his character from Easy Rider.

The 73-year-old movie icon claims designers for the brand used an image of him from the iconic 1969 film on the clothing without his permission.

He filed a lawsuit at the Superior Court of California on Friday (19Jul13) alleging the T-shirts, which feature a black and white picture of him in character, have damaged his "happiness, feelings, goodwill, reputation, image".

The lawsuit also targets U.S. retailer Nordstrom, which has been selling the shirts for around $295 (£197) each.

Fonda is seeking at least $6 million (£4 million) in compensation, as well as legal fees and all profits made from the range, according to
