Jean Lassalle challenged Eric Zemmour on Twitter this Friday, accusing the presidential candidate of having plagiarized the logos of his Résistons movement! for the use of its Reconquest! movement. The deputy for Pyrénées-Atlantiques declared that he was ready to take legal action.
The deputy and declared presidential candidate Jean Lassalle accused Friday Eric Zemmour of having plagiarized the logos of his movement Résistons! and asks him to change those of Reconquête!, under penalty of legal action.
“These logos are almost complete copies of the logos of the Résistons! movement which have been in operation for more than 5 years, the only difference being the order of the colors (a white letter on a blue background vs a blue letter on a white background), with a red exclamation mark in both cases”, writes, in a letter of formal notice published by the elected representative of Pyrénes-Atlantiques on Twitter, the lawyer Maxime Seno, who presents himself as the council of “the association Résistons !”.
Jean Lassalle steps up to the plate
Jean Lassalle denounces “an act of counterfeiting”. “The proximity of the logos (…) is such that it constitutes in fact an act of counterfeiting, which cannot last”, he wrote again in this letter dated Friday and addressed to the legal representative of Reconquête! , which is asked to “cease the use of the disputed logos within eight days”.

“This copy constitutes an act of counterfeiting. We will seize the competent courts if necessary”, affirmed on Twitter Jean Lassalle, who created his movement Resist! end of 2016, after leaving the MoDem, in view of the presidential election the following year. Reconquest! was launched on December 5 by polemicist Eric Zemmour as part of his presidential campaign.
