Oxes Gored?

Some lawsuits are fought in court, others in the gossip columns. 

The New York Post's Page Six reports the following today:

Old Navy had better go to battle stations. A Baltimore punk band, Oxes, claims the kitschy clothing chain owned by Gap Inc. ripped off one of its concert fliers to use on a T-shirt sold in Old Navy stores. "This is indefensible," said lawyer Carmen Giordano, who's filing a trademark infringement suit in Manhattan federal court today on behalf of Oxes, who have opened for Cheap Trick and the Breeders. "Old Navy has exploited their hard-edged image. The connection is completely contrary to their fiercely anti-establishment philosophy . . . and sullies their image." Old Navy did not return our call.

Adds Oxes' MySpace page, "Boycott Old Navy (if you feel like it)."  Now there's a battle cry.
