Louis Vuitton sues local importer for trademark infringement

Louis Vuitton sues local importer for trademark infringement

A company in Kaohsiung named Louis Vuitton Malletier was recently sued by the French haute couture company, Louis Vuitton.

Media reported that Louis Vuitton Malletier uses similar logo and they also use the “Apple Vuitton” logo. Additionally, LV believes that the advisement of Louis Vuitton Malletier could confuse the consumers because it describes itself as the importer of "luxurious brands products such as clothes, shoes, bags, perfumes and accessories." On the court, the Kaohsiung based importer denied the accusation of Louis Vuitton. The Intellectual Property Court ruled that the defendant must remove their logo and change its company name. The case can be further appealed.
