NEW ZEALAND: Icebreaker wins US trademark dispute
New Zealand-based outdoor apparel company Icebreaker has won a long-running legal dispute in the US after Italian fashion design house Gilmar complained its Iceberg trademark had been infringed.
The case was heard at the US District Court in Oregon, where Judge Anna Brown dismissed Gilmar's claim that Icebreaker was infringing on its Iceberg trademark in the US, adding that no trademark infringement has taken place.
In a statement issued to just-style today (10 December), Icebreaker said: "Icebreaker founder and CEO Jeremy Moon is delighted by Judge Brown's decision, but, as other legal action with Gilmar in continuing in other countries, will be making no further comment until this matter is resolved."
