MILAN — The Court of Milan’s intellectual property division has found Bergamo-based textile company Fratelli Martinelli Textile Srl guilty of creating and selling counterfeit merchandise with a logo intentionally similar to that of The Polo/Lauren Co. LP, a subsidiary of Ralph Lauren Corp.
According to a published report in the Corriere della Sera, Fratelli Martinelli Textile had been selling a line of home accessories and linens with a polo-player logo it called “American Polo Sporting Club.” In November 2011, The Polo/Lauren Co. LP and RL Fashions of Europe Srl, its local distributor, filed a complaint against the Italian textile firm.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
