No Fiddling with this Roma
In mid-December, Roma Costumes, a purveyor of “high-quality goods (e.g., women’s clothing, costumes, and accessories,” filed suit in a California federal court against Fendi (an Italian fashion brand) and Marc Jacobs (an American fashion designer) alleging that the latter are selling goods which feature a logo that is “confusingly similar” to Roma’s registered mark. (Complaint, paragraphs 1-2)
Roma claims that unless these defendants are stopped “from using the Reimagined Fendi’s Roma logo, such use will continue to cause consumer confusion and will cause [Roma] irreparable harm” and is thus seeking “injunctive relief, damages and other appropriate relief arising from Defendants’ willful acts of trademark infringement and unfair competition.” (Complaint, paragraph 3)
Looks like all roads lead to … trouble for this Roma.
