Louis Vuitton wins $1.6M counterfeiting judgment
IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT Counterfeit Louis Vuitton purse. Email | LinkedIn | Twitter | Google+ Fashion house Louis Vuitton Malletier won a new judgment Tuesday against counterfeiters in Miami federal court for $1.6 million. The judgment is the latest in a growing trend of Italian and French designers filing litigation in South Florida to defend their brand. Trademark attorney Stephen Gaffigan obtained the judgment against 67 website domains that sold 13 types of merchandise. The order by U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke also orders PayPal to freeze and turn over funds in accounts for the website sales. Like many of Gaffiganas cases, registration of the domains was traced to entities with Chinese names. Service of the lawsuit, however, was never returned and a default judgment was entered.

How the Louis Vuitton Cup changed the sport
“The concept arose from the fact that we challengers were tired of footing the bill for the organization of the qualifying regatta,” Trouble said. “It occurred to me that instead of spending money on the selection process, we should find a partner. That’s how it all started.” Trouble turned to the French-based, internationally acclaimed luxury goods company Louis Vuitton , founded in 1854, just three years after the start of the America’s Cup in 1851. “I had a meeting with the skippers (of the challenging teams), and I called Henry Racamier , the chairman of Louis Vuitton,” Trouble said. “It took a phone call and he said, ‘OK, I’m in.’ ” The first Louis Vuitton Cup, to determine which of the challengers will face the defender of the America’s Cup, was held in 1983. That first race marked a turning point in the history of the America’s Cup, as an Australian team skippered by John Bertrand wrested the Cup from the New York Yacht Club and ended America’s 132-year winning streak.

It was not a day, however, to experiment with foiling upwind but still ETNZ demonstrated superiority, stretching its lead to more than 800 metres. After rounding the windward mark with a lead of 2a58′, Barker could have relaxed but showed no sign of relenting in the search for speed as the time limit for the race was also a challenge. He need not have had any concern, Emirates Team New Zealand completed the 10.26-mile course in 33a49′, well inside the 40 minute time limit to take the Louis Vuitton Cup that it has last won in 2007. Luna Rossa finished 3a20′ in arrears and received as big acclaim as the winners from the weekend crowd along the piers and the foreshore. Max Sirena announced that in the spirit of the challengers, Luna Rossa would stay in commission to assist Emirates Team New Zealand in its assault on the Americaas Cup, which starts on September 7th. ‘We are very proud of what we have achieved,’ said Draper, ‘Those guys [ETNZ] have put an amazing act together, and we will help them.’ Louis Vuitton Finals Race 8; Luna Rossa vs Emirates Team New Zealand – Gilles Martin-Raget: AmericasCup A Click Here to view large photo Emiraes Team New Zealand wins the race 8 and the Louis Vuitton Cup in San Francisco California on August 25, 2013. -A Linda Wright Click Here to view large photo Luna Rossa after the race in SF August 25, 2013. -A Linda Wright Click Here to view large photo Emiraes Team New Zealand wins the race 8 and the Louis Vuitton Cup in San Francisco California on August 25, 2013.
Luxury international retailers require minimum shopfronts of at least 10-to-15 metres, ruling out traditional retail precincts like Rundle Mall that have been subdivided into smaller stores. One CBD property owner who preferred not to be named confirmed he was also in talks to secure Chanel and Louis Vuitton a site in Adelaide. “Typically the international luxury brand retailers look for prominent street-fronted locations like North Terrace and it would be highly unlikely that they would seek a position on Rundle Mall frontage,” he said. Topshop Topman group marketing director Prue Thomas said the entry of the UK fashion chain into Adelaide would rely on the company finding the right location. “Topshop and Topman are very keen to continue to secure premium large format retail positions nationally and Adelaide features high on our wish list, providing the right site presents itself,” she said. Earlier this month Topshop announced it would open its fourth Australian outlet in Brisbane in December.
