US: Deckers and Bearpaw settle over Ugg copies
Footwear firm Deckers Outdoor Corporation has reached a settlement with Tom Romeo and Romeo & Juliette, makers of Bearpaw boots, which it had sued for allegedly copying its best-selling Ugg brand.
Without giving details, the firm yesterday (23 February) said the litigation "was resolved to the parties' mutual satisfaction, by mutual agreement."
Deckers originally filed a lawsuit in November 2010, seeking a court order to stop the alleged copying of the design of several types of Ugg boot "using inferior materials, constructions and craftsmanship."
