WIPR Reports on Chanel’s Infringement Suit Against Party Rental Company
The World Intellectual Property Review (WIPR) has reported that luxury fashion brand Chanel has filed a trademark infringement claim against Trip West (doing business as Colorado Party Rental and Colorado Party Rentals). The Denver-based rental company allegedly used Chanel’s “CC” monogram trademarks on its wood dining chairs, and, following an unheeded cease-and-desist letter that Chanel sent Trip West in May, Chanel filed suit in the US District Court for the District of Colorado for six claims, including federal trademark infringement, false designation of origin, and trademark dilution. Additionally, Chanel is seeking relief in the form of a preliminary and permanent injunction and an order for the defendant to deliver for destruction all of the disputed goods. Olshan Intellectual Property counsel Safia Anand represented Chanel in this matter.
