3 STRIPES HIT THE STATES


The Miami Herald reports that Adidas is suing Abercrombie & Fitch in the US District Court in Portland. The German sportswear manufacturer is claiming that several pairs of pants and a zip-up sweat shirt, all adorned with three parallel stripes running down the sleeve and pant leg, which appeared in Abercromie’s Christmas catalogue, infringe its three-stripes trade mark. This is not the first time that the two companies have met in the US courts concerning infringement of that mark, though in the past the cases have been settled.

Good old Adidas-Take a little knock after Fitnessworld and bounce back again. Surely game set and match to Adidas this time both on TM infringement and dilution grounds.
