Levi’s Jeans are suing Iron Heart, Toyo, Studio D’Artisan, Oni and Samurai for Trademark infringement. Levi’s lawyers reputedly issued litigation to stores across the USA. Levi’s reputedly quote the following infringements of their TM:
1. Tabs attached between two pieces of fabric on the rear pockets are an infringement.
2. Back pocket cards by these brands are too similar to Levi’s back pocket cards.
3. Rear pockets are a copy of the famous Levi’s back pocket.
4. Rear leather patch which picture two moving objects (horses, motorcylcles, pigs, etc..) pulling a part a pair of jeans are a direct infringement.
Levi’s are reputedly suing the retailers, wholesalers and brands themselves. Looks like Levi’s are determined to make a very loud and clear point.
