NEW YORK — Louis Vuitton Malletier has won a consent decree for a permanent injunction against a Chinatown business in a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court. In court documents filed Oct. 3, but only recently available, judge Thomas Griesa granted Louis Vuitton a permanent injunction against Lucky Phoenix Inc. that restrains the business from selling counterfeit Louis Vuitton products. Lucky Phoenix will have to post signs provided by Louis Vuitton about the sale of counterfeit items. The lawsuit is discontinued as long as Lucky Phoenix abides by the terms of the consent decree, according to court documents.
Van Cleef & Arpels won a judgment on consent and reached a settlement agreement with Sabo Jewelry LLC, Adnan Aydin and Nadir Aydin on Oct. 10. Van Cleef filed a lawsuit against the defendants alleging copyright infringement. According to the court documents, Sabo Jewelry is restrained from copying or infringing upon Van Cleef's dual butterfly design. The parties also agreed on an undisclosed financial settlement.
Cartier has won a final judgment on consent in a lawsuit filed against Aaron FaberInc. and Edward Faber. The lawsuit was filed for alleged trademark infringement, false designation of origin, unfair competition and dilution through the sale of Cartier watches that were altered without the brand's authorization. The judgment permanently restricts Faber from selling altered Cartier watches. The two parties also agreed that Faber would place advertisements about the lawsuit in unspecified publications. An undisclosed financial settlement was reached.
Cartier was also awarded a partial summary judgment and permanent injunction against Symbolix Inc., which does business as Park Cities Jewelers. The lawsuit was filed in March 2005 for alleged trademark infringement and false designation of origin relating to Symbolix's alleged alteration of Cartier's Tank Française line of watches. According to the opinion written by U.S. District Judge Richard Holwell, Symbolix is restricted from marketing new or used Cartier watches that it has altered in a way that might mislead consumers about the watch's origin. The injunction does not prevent Symbolix from continuing to offer customization services to owners of Cartier timepieces who want to personalize their watches.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye
