Fort Lauderdale, FL—Maybe if more luxury brands filed suit against counterfeiters (and won), there would be a drop in what has been a rising tide of counterfeited merchandise. And if a federal court’s decision rendered here Thursday is any indication, then Gucci may have won a major battle against counterfeiters.
The court award the Italian luxury brand $144.2 million in damages from 155 domain names that has been accused of selling counterfeiting and cybersquatting faux Gucci merchandise including leathergoods, scarves etc.
The websites copied Gucci campaign advertisements, logos, product images and descriptions from official websites, and many also used Gucci in their domain name. Under court order the websites, which were registered in the United Kingdom, Canada, Cocos Islands, France, Italy, Japan and the United States, must shut down or surrender to Gucci within 30 days.
Gucci applauded the courts decision, saying the websites’ actions infringed on “Gucci’s unique creativity which has been harmful to Gucci’s image, business and well-known trademark reputation for creating high quality artisanal ‘Made in Italy’ products.”
