Louboutin gaining Court Support?

Louboutin gaining Court Support?

The Louboutin/YSL case has become a very hot topic for fashionistas and IP enthusiasts alike.

Appealed Tuesday in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, the judge seemed to show support for the Louboutin side, which would mean a possible overturning of the lower court decision to deny a preliminary injunciton.  Much of the argument is centered on the idea of a single color being a trademark, and if that should be allowed, in fashion.

Read more about the case here and here. And for some insight from Fordham’s own Professor Susan Scafidi click here and here.

Thank you to staffers Tracy Ederer and Kaitlin Keenan for the links!
