30 years. The conflict between Ralph Lauren and U.S. Polo Association over the use of the logos of both companies is already going on for 30 long years! And yet, the end is not in sight, despite a settlement in 2003 concerning some names and logos.
The latest development is that a federal judge in Manhattan ordered an arbitration two weeks ago. This judge had to decide on an alleged infringement in India.Enough to despair.
This arbitration might affect the ongoing lawsuits (such as the lawsuit over the flagship stores US Polo Association in New York). On the other hand, if this is the case, this will probably be subject for new legal procedures.
The logos of the two fighting parties are included in BrandBandits, did you played it already?
