The Louboutin Lawsuit.

Chrsitian Louboutin seems to have his pointed red soled pumps in a pinch. Mr. Louboutin recently filed a million dollar lawsuit against Yves Saint Laurent claiming that YSL had stolen his trademark red soles for Spring 2011. YSL’s recent rebuttal (and this is where it gets really interesting) states that Louboutin didn’t invent red soles and therefore can’t prevent anyone else from making shoes that feature them. YSL also presented the fact that: “Red soles area a commonly used ornamental design feature in footwear, dating as far back as the red shoes worn by King Louis XIV in the 1600’s and the ruby red shoes that carried Dorothy home in the “Wizard of Oz.” YSL accuses Louboutin of using its lawsuit as an anti-competition scheme designed to get big retailers to pull YSL shoes from the shelves.

Louboutin does have a trademark on file with the US Patent and Trademark office that protects its red soles as the company’s intellectual property, and by selling a shoe with a red sole, YSL is in infringing upon that trademark. BUT…Court papers filed by YSL state that “Louboutin was fraudulent in his trademark application claim that he had ‘exclusive’ use of the red sole…

There’s no way of knowing how this high heel drama will play out but one might suggest that both parties do a little soul searching. Let’s pray…it all works out for the best!
