Gucci sues Guess For Copying Logo And Designs
Italian fashion house Gucci sues and submit a lawsuit against the trademark owner of leather and fashion that become its competitor, Guess Inc., Wednesday, because Guess Inc. have been imitating some of the Gucci's trademark logo and clothes design.

Gucci accused Guess Inc of imitating their trademarked designs, including a green and red stripe, a repeated interlocking GG mark and stylized G mark it emblazoned on accessories like watches, gloves, handbags, belts and glasses.

The lawsuit mentioned that "Rather than going through the effort and expense of developing and creating their own unique designs, defendants have chosen to target Gucci by knowingly and slavishly replicating Gucci's world famous design elements and designations."

This lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court. Gucci also accused Guess of copying a dress featuring an interlocking GG diamond motif, and they litigate Guess in order to replace losses that they get.

The Gucci Group is owned by France's group PPR SA, owner of Puma, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. Guess Inc. still do not want to give an explanation related to this case, and a Guess spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
