Iconic pop artist Andy Warhol and influential New York rockers the Velvet Underground have been linked ever since Warhol's banana print appeared on the cover of the band's 1967 debut album, 'The Velvet Underground & Nico' -- a fact cited by the Velvets in a copyright lawsuit filed last year against the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts over its licensing of the image for such products as covers for Apple iPods and iPads.

A judge rejected the band's copyright claim last September but also ruled that the VU can continue to pursue legal action against the Warhol Foundation solely over trademark grounds. Stay tuned -- this one rages on!
