After weeks of a rather lengthy battle (and rather amusing hilarity) the trial between Gucci and Guess has finally come to a close. The trial began earlier this month with Gucci claiming $221 million in damages due to nothing short of an alleged trademark infringement “ponzi” scheme on Guess’s part and Guess claiming that Gucci sat on their laurels for the past 7 years and are no longer eligible to claim the infringement. Closing arguments ended last week, but it could be quite some time before the judge issues a decision in the matter. But rest assured, these chatty chicks will keep you updated on any news that comes our way regarding this highly publicized trial.

“G” That’s an Awfully Lengthy Legal Battle

12 Apr

In 2009, Paris based Gucci initiated legal action against the Los Angeles based Guess? Inc. brand for selling items in stores and on-line that are “studied imitations of the Gucci trademarks”. The trademarks include a green and red stripe design, a square G, the designer’s name in flowing script and a diamond pattern with repeating interlocking G’s. Gucci has recently taken this battle to a whole new level alleging that Guess? has devised “a massive, complicated scheme to knock off Gucci’s best-known and iconic designs”. Gucci claims that $221 million worth of Guess? products have infringed on Gucci’s designs. The trial began on March 28th and so far there is no end in sight – just juicy legal drama to blog about!
