Spears' music video banned in Europe

The music video to Britney Spears' single 'Do Somethin' has been banned from being aired on European TV stations after fashion label Louis Vuitton won an injunction yesterday.

The clothing brand claimed that the 2005 video, which shows Spears driving a bright pink car covered in their 'LV' symbol, had "damaged their image".

Louis Vuitton won the ruling in Paris, where both Sony BMG and MTV Online were ordered to pay $117,600 each for "damaging" the brand's image. They must also pay $1,470 for every day that the video is kept online.

Meanwhile, Spears is facing other legal issues after an estate agent threatened to sue her for wrecking an apartment in California.
