Yves Saint Laurent has come out victorious in the battle of the red outsoles!

On Wednesday, a judge denied Christian Louboutin's request for a preliminary injunction against YSL because he thinks Louboutin would have a hard time proving why his shoes deserve trademark protection.

Judge Victor Marrero wrote in his ruling:

"Because in the fashion industry color serves ornamental and aesthetic functions vital to robust competition, the court finds that Louboutin is unlikely to be able to prove that its red outsole brand is entitled to trademark protection, even if it has gained enough public recognition in the market to have acquired secondary meaning."

He has a point there. Trademarking a color is kinda ridiculous.

Do U agree with the ruling???
