PARIS — Adidas AG, the second-largest sporting goods firm in the world, is taking the world's number-one retailer, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., to court.
The German activewear giant has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart for the use of two- and four-stripe motifs on its sneakers, which it claims are similar to the brand's trademarked three stripes. The case will be heard in the federal court of Portland, Ore., in October. A spokeswoman for Adidas on Wednesday confirmed that legal proceedings have begun against Wal-Mart but declined further comment.
