Update on Marimekko / Dolce & Gabbana Lawsuit

The previously posted dispute between Marimekko and Dolce & Gabbana has been settled in Marimekko’s favor. A no-brainer if I ever saw one! According to this news story, D&G will be paying Marimekko for using the famous (and copyrighted) Unikko pattern. (via the Marimekko Blog)

    Funny that it was a no brainer to all of us but not to those at Dolce & Gabbana! Yay Marimekko!

    Strange that a company with such a high profile as Dolce & Gabbana, would not see this as a problem. Surely all these companies employ a gaggle (not sure if that’s the right terminology) of lawyers, to make sure that these incidents don’t arise in the first place. All very strange.
