From hair to shoes to the clothes inbetween, big brands are big business in fashion trademarks. And, no matter what the designer might say, they are always thinking about the competition.
Take a look at a couple of recently filed fashion law trademark cases:
- Can a registered trademark owner make you stop using your own given name as a trademark? That's the question before the court in Chanel, Inc. v. Chanel's Salon LLC.
- Sneaker entrepreneur Antonio Brown sues Louis Vuitton.
- Three street artists who created a mural in San Francisco’s Mission district sued Italian fashion designer Roberto Cavalli for copyright infringement and trademark infringement over a clothing and accessories collection in which every square inch of every piece in the product line was adorned with graffiti art.
- What's the color PINK got to do with it? A lot if you're Victoria's Secret battling UK men's clothier Thomas Pink.
