The German sports giant sued H&M over the fact that they had been selling clothing with two parallel stripes over the side of the sleeves and trousers. adidas claims it is trademark infringement, while H&M argues that it is merely decoration.
The court ruling puts an end to a two-decade trademark feud. A very big and important win for adidas, that deals with ‘stripe infringements’ regularly.
