New York Governor Andrew Cuomo warned reality TV star Khloe Kardashan that the logo on a shirt sold in her high-end clothing line, Rich Soil, may violate copyright law.

According to CS Monitor, the governor sent Kardashian a pro-forma letter advising the designer that the logo featured on one of the articles of her clothing line is almost identical to the New York Department of Agriculture's logo.

Both logos feature a Statue of Liberty over plow rows inside a circle. And while Kardashian's logo reads "Rich Soil New York," the DOA's reads "Pride of New York."

Kardashian's line pulled the shirt from its website after receiving the cease and desist letter that threatened to sue if the brand didn't stop selling the item and disclosed an estimate of the money made off the design, The Daily News reported.
