Louis Vuitton Malletier S.A. asked the Supreme Court to overturn a ruling that My Other Bag Inc.’s mimicking of the fashion house’s famous interlocking logo is a parody not subject to a trademark dilution charge ( Louis Vuitton Malletier, S.A. v. My Other Bag, Inc. , U.S., No. 17-72, review requested 7/13/17 ).
There is a long history of high fashion brands suing lower fast-fashion brands (Zara, Urban Outfitters, etc.) for ripping off their designs. The trend is particularly disastrous to those big companies, who display their designs on a runway months before they will ever be available to purchase in a brick-and-mortar store or online. On the other hand, fast-fashion labels can look directly to runway shows and immediately produce ripoffs that can be on their shelves within weeks.
