Burberry has filed a lawsuit against US fashion retailer JC Penney for allegedly copying its signature check print.
The British luxury brand filed the complaint in the US district court in Manhattan, accusing the retailer of selling quilted jackets and scarves with the pattern.
Burberry said JC Penney kept selling the products for two months after the firm was alerted to the brand’s intentions to sue.
According to Reuters, Burberry said: “Even though defendants’ infringing products are of inferior quality, they appear superficially similar to genuine Burberry products. Defendants’ actions are intended to deceive and mislead consumers into believing that defendants’ or their products are authorised, sponsored by or connected to Burberry.”
