NY Court Grants Louboutin Red Soles Trademark Protection

Disagreeing with a federal district court that earlier denied a preliminary injunction sought by a French designer after another high-fashion industry icon allegedly infringed on his trademarked red-soled shoes, a federal appeals court Wednesday said that Christian Louboutin is entitled to seek a legal remedy except when the shoes in question are entirely red.

Our guess is that an appeal is certain. Via the ABA Journal. The WSJ Law Blog has the opinion available here.
