Don't Use Chanel As An Adjective Or They'll Sue!

This is absolutely crazy!

Chanel bought a full page ad in Women's Wear Daily on Monday warning writers not to use the word "Chanel" to describe another designer's collection unless they'd like to be sued.

WTF!?

The ad stated:

A note of information and entreaty to fashion editors, advertisers, copywriters and other well-intentioned mis-users of our Chanel name:
Chanel was a designer, an extraordinary woman who made a timeless contribution to fashion. Chanel is a perfume. Chanel is modern elegance in couture, ready-to-wear, accessories, watches and fine jewelry. Chanel is our registered trademark for fragrance, cosmetics, clothing, accessories and other lovely things.

Although our style is justly famous, a jacket is not ‘a Chanel jacket’ unless it is ours, and somebody else’s cardigans are not ‘Chanel for now.’ And even if we are flattered by such tributes to our fame as ‘Chanel-issime, Chanel-ed, Chanels, and Chanel-ized’, PLEASE DON’T. Our lawyers positively detest them. We take our trademark seriously.

Merci,
Chanel, Inc.

Wow.

Sound's to us like someone's on a power trip.

Thoughts???
