Protect the Check: An Update On Burberry V. Body Glove Plus The Legal Docs You Haven't Seen
As we reported yesterday, Burberry is suing Body Glove, manufacturers of phone covers that will make your iPhone look like the inside of a one of their trench coats. According to legal docs obtained by Fashionista, Burberry is accusing the defendants of "willful infringement of Burberry's famous, federally-registered BURBERRY CHECK trademarks." Burberry claims that by making and selling the copycat cellphone cases, the defendants are capitalizing on the "goodwill and fame" associated with the check; misleading consumers and diluting the value of the check. Burberry takes their check very, very seriously.
