Christian Louboutin is not doing business easily in these days , let us see what has happened.
It’s been a little more than a week since Christian Louboutin , the French shoe designer who was at the forefront of the movement to bring back the four-inch heel in the early ’90s, sued Gucci-owned fashion house Yves Saint-Laurent in a Manhattan federal courthouse: Since 1992, Louboutins have been known for their lacquer-red soles, and, the designer’s counsel claimed, a red sole introduced by Yves Saint-Laurent violated the trademark feature he registered in the U.S. in 2007.
His lawyers have since struck a second time, suing the Brazilian design house Carmen Steffens for red-sole infringement in France.
I conducted some grossly unscientific polling to see what Louboutin’s target audience thinks of his legal claims, and found that there’s no consensus on whether Louboutin’s claim is absurd or Yves Saint-Laurent a copycat. Over drinks, one friend, a public-relations executive from the Upper East Side with, let’s say, a history of shoe worship, thought it was simple: “He came up with the red soles, he invested a lot in them, you can’t just copy that.”At the coffee machine, an impressively fashion-forward administrator at my office noted, “That’s how everyone knows his shoes.” But another well-dressed friend furrowed her brow and snorted. “What, he owns the color red now? Nobody else can make red shoes?”
In fact, I think the law fundamentally supports all three reactions, partly. On the whole, fashion designs get very little intellectual property protection. They aren’t usually eligible for patents or copyrights. Patents are for inventions, copyrights for creative works, and fashion traditionally falls outside both definitions.
Even it was a hard time when Christian Louboutin engaged in a lawsuit , but he still stick to it , we all should learn the spirit from him. Buy christian louboutin replica shoes at bestshops .
