So, the Adidas trademark ruling triggers warnings over ‘lookalike’ stripes, does it (News, DW 17 April)?
Well, that’s just bloody ridiculous. I could have understood the European Court of Justice’s ruling if it related to three stripes, but only just.
Two stripes, on the other hand, is surely setting a thoughtless precedent.
Hell, maybe Nike will be next. They have a stripe that’s kinked and comes to a point at each end.
I love Adidas shoes. I wear them all the time, but it’s a shame there are ‘soles who take things just a little too far.
