Christian Louboutin sues YSL for the red-sole shoes
According to the Reuters reported, Mr. Louboutin is the first person that produces the red-sole high heels, the red shoes of YSL may cause confused and misunderstanding between YSL and Christian Louboutin to customers. Christian Louboutin registered the red-sole shoes as their patent in America, 2008. So the brand asks for YSL, which is a luxury brand, to make compensation of $1 million and stop producing all the red-sole shoes at the same time. But YSL has not made any response as far.
Mr. Louboutin said that he with great respect for YSL. But the lawsuit is not aimed at YSL competely. -If we don’t take it to resort to judgment, the other brands would think that there is an opportunity to take advantage of copying our red shoes.- Moreover, Mr. Louboutin emphasized that his brand is the first brand that is based on color logo, therefor the importance of red-sole to Christian Louboutin likes the logo of other brands. it is not wholly unreasonable as the explanation likes that.
The fake red-sole shoes are epidemic in the in the market. This is not the first time that Christian Louboutin claim legal aid. Nowdays, the scarlet-sole shoes has became the synonym of luxury women shoes. Its success brings imitators, such as the YSL big luxury brand and a mass of low-priced cloth brands. Christian Louboutin always on the rack for protecting their brand. Early in 2007, an American cloth brand was sued by making the similar red-sole shoes.
As a luxury women shoes brand, Christian Louboutin are sold out of stock even though sky-high prices. The nature of pursuing for beauty decide every woman will look for one kind of dreamy shoes for herself. On the other hand, the multiform imitation win the popularity in less than one fifth of the price of Christian Louboutin. Christian Louboutin has appeared in many songs, such as the songs of Jennifer Lopez and Beastie Boys. The brand sells about 500 thousand pair of shoes in 46 contries every year. Prices range from $295 (canvas shoes) to several thousand dollars (customized). Implementting trademark protection costs quite high, but it is deserved if competitors will infringe upon key customers.
The various design of Christian Louboutin are presented in many famous stars’ feet, such as Oprah Winfrey, Carla Bruni, Rene Zellweger and BeyoncKnowles. How could we know? Because at every step, they will show the large red under their shoes. By the way, I support Christian Louboutin to sue YSL for the red-sole shoes. The fake shoes should be attracted. However it will be better if Christian Louboutin can price-off their shoes.
