Louboutin accused the house of Yves Saint Laurent in
violation of copyright trademark and "unfair competition". The
scandal emerged after in the boutiques of Yves Saint Laurent
in Manhattan appeared shoes with red soles. In this
connection the Christian Louboutin has demanded
compensation of $ 1 million from Laurent because he
blatantly copied the signature red soles that are the hallmark
of his shoes.
7. АdjudicationHowever, the us court upheld the claim of reason, stating
that the red sole cannot be considered a trademark.
Moreover, the judge stated that Christian Louboutin has not
provided the court with compelling evidence that the house
Yves Saint Laurent has violated the owner's copyright of the
"red soles". The court decided to reject the claim, not to
prohibit the sale of red-soled shoes in other brands and not
to pay Louboutin a million dollars compensation.
