Beyonce Knowles is letting bootleggers know that if you sell stuff with her picture on it, you will get sued. The Grammy winner filed a federal lawsuit today in New York, alleging that various "John and Jane" Does are selling knock-off merchandise outside her concerts.

According to TMZ, the 27-year-old noted that the unnamed assailants have peddled the CDs and other items bearing her likeness "in the vicinity of" her previous concerts around the world. Knowles is convinced that the piracy will continue and is asking the court to deem the sale of such products as illegal.
