Marc Jacobs Sues Ed Hardy

February 10, 2010 • Fashion


Another day, another counterfeit…

Marc Jacobs has filed an infringement lawsuit against Ed Hardy parent company Nervous Tattoo Inc. over a handbag design.

Marc Jacobs International filed a complaint against Ed Hardy on a print which Jacobs said infringes on its pending Scrambled and the trade dress associated with that line of totes. 

A quilted tote with the brand's name stitched in block print has been available at Marc Jacobs since 2007. Attorneys for Jacobs wrote that the bag is "confusingly similar" and that Hardy's bag “has been intentional and willful, calculated specifically to trade off the goodwill that plaintiffs have developed in their successful Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon tote bags.” 

Ed Hardy has not made a comment yet.
