|Adidas loses three-stripe trademark battle
Adidas has lost a legal battle over a possible misuse of its three-stripe logo. It complained against the U.S. fashion brand Thom Browne, which uses a four-stripe logo. Adidas said the four stripes were too similar to its logo. Adidas claimed $7.8 million in damages. However, a jury decided in Thom Browne's favour. It said consumers were unlikely to confuse the two brands, as they were capable of distinguishing between different numbers of stripes.
