    Turns out Christian Audigier is getting hauled to court by Marc Jacobs over trademark infringement and trade dress over purse designs.
    Marc claims Audigier is selling tote bags that "bear trade dress that unlawfully copies or imitates Plantiffs' unique, distinctive and non-functional Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Tote Trade Dress and/or that unlawfully bear marks confusingly similar to the Marc Jacobs Scrambled Trademark".
    Whew, what a mouthful!
    Jacobs currently has a pending application for the Pretty Nylon tote for the Marc Jacobs scrambled trademark that's on the inside lining.
    To add insult to injury, Marc is also suing for unfair competition.
    Looks like Marc is taking the rhinestone-loving Audigier to the cleaners!

  11. im really glad to see this because design patents are a new thing in the fashion industry. before, changing a design ever so much allowed people to slide by with knockoffs, even in court. but in the past few years (notice the new patent tags inside MJ bags??) designers have come together to work with the patent office to get more protection for their designs. im so glad to see they can now actually take action against this crap!
     
  12. Blech... I threw up in my mouth a bit when I saw the Ed Hardy version. Gross... and definitely a blatant rip-off. I'm so sick of seeing Ed Hardy everywhere in LA, but that's irrelevant. Good luck MJ!
