Burberry Awarded $100 Million From Counterfeit Websites!

burberry-wins-100-million-judgement-against-chinese-internet-counterfeit-network.jpg

It may not be as big as UGG Australia's payday, but it's still a lot of moola!

Burberry is $100 million richer, thanks to a default judgement made by a Manhattan Federal court on Thursday.

Judge Thomas Griesa awarded the British brand the hefty sum of money after the defendants, a network of Chinese Internet counterfeiters, failed to show up in court.

It also didn't help that the online fraudsters, who were accused of selling at least 22 types of fake goods bearing Burberry trademarks, never responded to the initial complaint filed back in January.

In addition to the 9 figure judgement, Burberry now has the power to shut down other infringing sites and hold third-party hosts like Google and Facebook accountable for associating with them.

Congrats!

Gucci Gets Their Day In Court With GUESS

Filed under: Legal MattersGucciGuess

Lawyers for Gucci and GUESS kicked off their copyright infringement battle in a New York federal court on Wednesday.

Here's the deets: in 2009 the Italian fashion house sued the jeans company for knocking off $200 million in Gucci product by "using a variety of design elements, including a block letter 'G', a combination of green and red stripes and diamond-logoed motifs".

Gucci's lead attorney Louis Ederer said in his opening statement:

"This case is not about following fashion trends. It’s about a massive, complicated scheme to knock off Gucci’s best-known and iconic designs."

He also added they had a "clear intent" to make shoppers "think it’s Gucci", but GUESS' attorney Daniel Petrocelli begged to differ. He fired back:

"Guess is not Gucci. It has no reason to be like Gucci and it did not scheme to be like Gucci…At the end of the day, it’s got to show up in the product, the proof is in the product. Gucci fabric, Gucci this, Gucci swatches. This is how they talk. That’s how they identify looks and feels and fabrics.…This case is built on a house of cards. That you can create intent from whole clothing and run it back and collect $220 million."

And that was only the first day!?

This is going to be good!

the-situation-sues-abercrombie-and-fitch.jpg

The Situation is giving a whole new meaning to GTL : gym, tan, LAWSUIT.

The Jersey Shore star is finally taking legal action against the Abercrombie & Fitch after they publicly offered him money to NOT wear their clothes earlier this year.

According to the suit filed in Florida, Sitch claims A&F "infringed on the GTL and the Situation trademarks" through their lame publicity stunt and by selling shirt with the words "The Fitchuation" and "GTL…You Know The Deal" printed on them.

Mike is seeking at least $4 million in damages.

Ouch. Maybe next time Abercrombie will keep their mouths shut.
