Steve Madden ripped off Balenciaga's Lego shoe so long ago that Faran wrote the original Adventures in Copyright. So what propelled them to sue this past Monday? Maybe the fact that Alexander McQueen finally put his foot down in October or maybe it just took them this long to get their shit together, but hip hip hooray others are jumping on the bandwagon. According to the filed documents, Balenciaga's suing for Copyright Infringement, Trademark Infringement, False Designation of Origin, and Unfair Competition. The lawsuit outlines the birth of the Lego shoe, from its AW07 debut to its prominence in editorials and its celebrity fans before launching into a better-worded AIC, explaining how and why Steve Madden copied the shoe step by step. Steve Madden needs a Chrismukkah miracle.
