Don Henley Settles 'Don a Henley' T-Shirt Ad Lawsuit

(Radio.com) A lawsuit dating back to last fall between The Eagles' drumming frontman Don Henley and Duluth Trading Co. has been settled, with the clothing manufacturer making a donation to Walden Wood Project, Henley's charity devoted to preserving the works of Henry David Thoreau, as well as issuing a public apology.

The legal battle emerged after Duluth issued an email advertising campaign with the line "Don a henley and take it easy," making a clear play on the singer's name and one of his most famous song titles. Henley and the Eagles pride themselves on never having licensed their music for any product advertising.

"We pushed the advertising envelope too farů," the company said in the apology. "We are deeply regretful and we apologize, not just to Mr. Henley, but to anyone else who took offense." Read more here.
