US: Victoria's Secret in trademark battle with Thomas Pink
Victoria's Secret has moved to protect its Pink brand in the US, after shirt maker Thomas Pink sued the company over the use of the word in a UK court.
The lingerie company is seeking a declaration that its use of the Victoria's Secret Pink and Pink trademarks do not infringe those of Thomas Pink.
The filing said that Thomas Pink sued Victoria's Secret UK claiming that Victoria's Secret's use of the Victoria's Secret Pink brand infringes its rights, and the UK action places it at imminent risk of a suit on the same grounds in the US.
It added that it is bringing the action to clarify the rights of the parties, allowing them to continue the "peaceful coexistence that has been in place for many years".
It emphasised that Victoria's Secret's past, present, and continued use of the Victoria's Secret Pink marks and trade names, does not and will not infringe those of Thomas Pink's trademark or name rights or compete unfairly with the company.
