Gucci and Guess join Louboutin and Louis Vuitton in the battle of the brands

Gucci and Guess are the latest brands to get into a legal tussle over copyright/trademark infringement issues. Though Guccifiled a case against Guess in 2009, it was only last week that the case made its way to court.

The Italian label owned by French conglomerate PPR is suing Guess over what it calls "a massive, complicated scheme to knock off Guccis best-known and iconic designs," according to Guccis lawyer Louis Ederer. Guess is said to have mimics Guccis design of the G logo, the interlocking Gs hardware and a script font, as well as usage of Guccis banner colors, green and red.
