UK: Acupuncture Clothing Deflates Copycats
Acupuncture Clothing today announced the successful outcome of two intellectual property rights suits against Lloyd Shoe Co Limited and Sacha, a UK-based shoe retailer. In September, Lloyds Shoe Co. Limited, which operates shoe concessions out of the TopMan stores, entered into undertakings not to deal in trainers that infringe Acupuncture's design rights in any of their Spring/Summer 2000 collection, including the "Beefer" and "Alto" trainers.
