“Lulu lemon’s Vs. Calvin Klein”

Reviewing this case on copyrights Luluemon’s is suing Calvin Klein for copycatting its active wear  “Astro” Yoga Pants collection.  As we are aware, in today’s fashion industry it is hard to sue a company for patent or copyrights infringement. However today we have seen that numerous companies have taken the step to make this issue know that if done they are taken action.  I find that these cases are creating an evolving trend block. Think about it, if more companies start suing other fashion companies and designers then every season new and advance market trends will start to decline. The Fashion industry is one of the leading industry and with new ideas and creativity our market grows. If companies can’t keep up with change then all the wars and lawsuits over whom copycatting their lines will be unnecessary. However I can relate to Lululemon’s wanting to set a standard on what is right but this lawsuit will result in nothing, unless we as consumers have the government dictates what we wear.

“Navajo Nation Vs. Urban Outfitters clothing line”

“The Navajo Nation filed lawsuit against Urban Outfitters of the use of the Navajo name on clothing. This as we know is called trademark infringement in the use of the Navajo name and trademark of its popular clothing and fashion items. Some of the controversial items in the Navajo line included panties and a liquor flask”. After reviewing this case I can understand the Navajo concerns regarding Urban Outfitters line and how it has infringe on its name and culture. However I give urban outfitter credit for coming up which such great collection and its creativity and feel that both parties can come to some form of agreement. Yes, They did trademark infringe upon the name, but in this case it seem to me that its more about the culture and it concerns for usage of the Tribes name without permission. If Urban Outfitters gave the tribe some form of recognition with the collection I believe the lawsuit would be avoided. However there is a lot of money to be made from this collection and maybe wise for Urban Outfitter to put together a contract giving the tribe recognition and a percentage of it sales to one of its foundation. This is just my opinion.

“Will. I. Am Gets Sued for 2Million For Fashion Fall Out”

Black Eyed Peas star Will. I. AM, allegedly broke a contract with I. AM. Clothing. They are suing him for 2 million dollars.  The company claims that the performer had a contract with them until 2016; well the performer claims that the contract was over and done with. Well if the contract was signed in 2010 and expires in 2016 then the artist is liable and this is considered a breach of contract. I.AM.Clothing stated that the artist agreed to loan is name for Marketing and design purposes. Companies investing millions of dollars in endorsement deals with artists, found that many performers tend to back out of contracts that ultimately put the company in financial risks and hardship. I feel that Will. I. AM is responsible for backing out of this contract and should pay the 2 million if he signed on to the terms and agreements listed in the contract.
