Christian Louboutin (Rightfully) Loses Battle Against YSL

Posted in The Business of Fashion

My esteemed Fashion Law Colleague, Susan Scafidi, and I were both featured on CBS’s the Early Show commenting on U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero’s denial of Christian Louboutin’s request for a Preliminary Injunction to stop Yves Saint Laurent  from selling red shoes, claiming YSL’s shoes infringe on Louboutin’s trademarked red sole.

As seems to be our pattern, Susan and I are on opposite sides of the issue.  While not shown on the CBS [Video], Judge Marrero’s decision was "Dead On Balls Accurate."


Stayed tuned to learn why Louboutin should be seeing red from his many blunders in this lawsuit.
