Posted on

Famed martial artist Bruce Lee has long passed away, but his daughter is watching out for him to this day.

Shannon Lee is suing a Chinese restaurant chain for a whopping $30 million for allegedly using her father’s image without proper permission.

According to a Yahoo! News report, Lee is suing Kungfu Catering Management for allegedly violating her late father’s intellectual property rights by using the photo for its Real Kung Fu restaurants without permission for 15 years.

The complaint was filed through Lee’s company, Bruce Lee Enterprises.

The fast-food company responded via local social media site Weibo and said that they were under the impression they had received the proper permission to do so.

“We’re confused that we are prosecuted many years later. We’re actively studying the case and preparing to respond,” the statement read, according to Yahoo!

Lee is also demanding that the company remove Bruce Lee’s image and make note of its lack of affiliation to the TV star for a period of 90 days, the outlet reported.
