Two stripes and you’re out, or is it three, four, five?

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.
