Louis Vuitton and Burberry, serious about protecting their trademarks, won a round against the counterfeiters today.
In the largest ever judgment in a trademark counterfeiting and copyright case in Canada, Louis Vuitton will receive CAD $1.4 million (about USD $1.5 million) and Burberry will receive CAD $1.1 million (about USD $1.14 million).
Who’s paying up? Canadian companies Singga Enterprises Inc., and Carnation Fashion Company, which have been selling fake LV and Burberry handbags for about three years.
It just goes to show you–don’t mess with the check. Or the monogram. 😉
