New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warns that the logo Khloe Kardashian has on her t-shirt line may violate the state’s copyright. The administration sent the reality star an official letter.

The governor confirmed his administration sent what he called a “pro forma” letter advising Kardashian that her tee-shirt line resembles the logo of a New York farm program.

“The State of New York has invested substantial time, effort and resources creating the respect and goodwill associated with the trademark,” the letter read.

The state’s design has an image of the Statue of Liberty above crop rows, encircled by the words “Pride of New York.”

Kardashian’s shirt contains the Statue of Liberty image and crop rows and, in font similar to the New York logo, the words: “Rich Soil New York.”

Cuomo asks for Khloe to stop selling the T-shirts and to provide the state with information about how many shirts have already been sold. The letter also said that, if she ignores the request, the state would take legal action.

While Khloe Kardashian or Lamar Odom have yet to respond when checking the Rich Soil website the shirt appears to have been removed for sale.
