A lawyer walks into a bar…and demands they pay up!
The Chanel Business Club bar in South Korea has been ordered to pay $8,800 to Chanel for jacking their name, logo, and failure to respond to the lawsuit.
The bar used the iconic logo in signs and leaflets for years, which, according to Chanel, caused damage to the company’s image for providing services that could be viewed as negative.
Hmm… We wonder what those services might be? Ha!
Moral of the story? Don’t take what isn’t yours, especially if it's from a mega fashion house that has more money than they know what to do with.
