Legal Eagle: Hermès & Dior…Victorious.

April 9, 2008 • Fashion

This one almost got by us! According to WWD, Hermès International and Christian Dior triumphed in separate efforts to protect their intellectual property. This is huge! Hermès
said it is claiming $46,900 from
eBay in damages for the online auction house’s alleged sale of
counterfeit Hermès products.

Hermès spokeswoman confirmed the luxury goods company accused eBay of
providing a platform for the sale of counterfeit bags, as well as
taking a commission. Hermès declined further comment pending the
court’s verdict on June 4.

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton,
Christian Dior, Rolex France and Tiffany & Co. also have taken eBay
to court in France over allegedly selling counterfeit products. An eBay
France spokeswoman declined all comment.

Meanwhile, Christian
Dior Couture won a court victory against the French budget jewelry
chain Camille & Lucie for allegedly copying one of its fine jewelry

A spokeswoman for Camille & Lucie confirmed Dior
was awarded around $230,000, in damages for peddling
a style resembling Dior’s floral Diorette ring for about
$50. Camille & Lucie was also ordered to destroy
the goods in question.

Did you really think that Dior bag you bought in Ebay was real? Silly girl.

    I understand the attack on ebay and the like, but I don’t understand high end designers attacking budget stores like Camille & Lucie and Forever 21. People who can afford to shop Dior are not shopping at these places. It makes these designers seem childish and less like a place I would want to spend my hard earned money.
