The Fashion Law Case of 2011 – Louboutin v. YSL

Posted on

The Louboutin v. YSL lawsuit  is proving to be the most interesting and informative fashion law case of the year.  Most recently, the International Trademark Association (“INTA”) published its perspective on the legal issues involved, a perspective that conflicts with the judge’s most recent ruling in the case.  This development followed on the heels of Tiffany’s amicus brief submitted to the court in favor of Louboutin.  It’s only going to get more interesting as the case proceeds.  For those of you interested in yet another perspective on the case (one that is not favorable to Louboutin), Charles Colman has publlshed an analysis at Styleite.  For an analysis of INTA’s position, go to the Canada Fashion Law site.
