THE SAGA CONTINUES: Gucci & Guess Land in Federal Court Over Knockoffs?

March 30, 2012 |  by  |  I want MY MONEY, I'll Sue Your A$$, News  |  Share

Gucci is finally having its day in Federal court from what began initially as a lawsuit filed back in 2009!  Gucci has accused Guess of product infringement on its trademarked designs.  According to Gucci’s court filings this includes the green and red stripe design, the square G, the designer’s name in flowing script and a diamond pattern with repeating interlocking G’s.  Guess doesn’t quite see it that way.  They claim Gucci “sat on its rights” for seven years prior to suing.  It’s their belief that if they, Guess, were really doing something wrong why did Gucci wait so long to file???  Additionally Guess is asking for proof that consumers are confused about the difference between Guess and Gucci products.  WELL it’s Gucci’s claim that $221 million worth of Guess products infringed Gucci designs.  That’s a lot of damn confused customers!!

I can understand both arguments but I’m gonna have to side with Guess on this one.  Yes, there are absolutely some Guess products that are modeled after Gucci products.  However, there is NOOOO way that anyone with the clear intention of buying a pair of $400 designer Gucci sneakers (like the ones above) mistakenly purchased a pair of $75 Guess sneakers instead.  Let’s recap, YES Guess mimicked some designs but NO it doesn’t appear that this in any way misdirected profits that Gucci would have otherwise pocketed.  That’s just my common sense verdict based on the fact that I’ve also never heard anyone rap about Guess or give themselves monikers paying homage to Guess (Gucci Mane anyone).  We’ll have to wait a few weeks to see what the courts decide.  I’ll definitely keep you posted.

    August 2011 I launched with full force. I was excited to post, I was eager to see my traffic numbers weekly. All this occurred before social media took off. Then Instagram arrived and everybody and their mother wanted to be a "Blogger."
    When I first started I was totally against being called a blogger, because at the time bloggers were messy and posted negative gossip. That was never my thing. I am more of the Fashion x Music served with lite tea site. As Instagram popularity continued to grow I was more focused on posting daily there than on my site. I worked hard to achieve a following even though most of my followers just looked and never On August 11th, 2017 Instagram deleted my page for the second time. It happened in 2013 and then again a few weeks ago. I was totally hurt by the action especially since I am unsure why it was deleted.
    So I have decided to refocus my energy on my merchandise TheAddictedLife I'll continue to blog here and there but I'm bigger than just being a "Blogger." Branding Addicted2Candi is so much more than that. So maybe the universe is telling me to reroute to fulfill my dreams. For anyone that enjoyed my few podcast shows, I am releasing a new podcast this month. I have so much in store for myself and all of my supporters.
    Ladies please be sure to cop your Dope Chick With Ambition T- Shirt via My goal is to be a millionaire in this lifetime and that's what I am going to achieve. Don't ever give up on your dreams. But when necessary reroute and attempt to achieve your goals another way. And remember
    "Real ones may fall back but they never fall off!"
    Be sure to follow my merchandise page @ShopTheAddictedLife and Personal Page @Addicted2Candi on the gram.
