Gucci wins preliminary injunction in 'Elisabetta Gucci' trademark case
Jul '10
Gucci is pleased to announce that the injunctive proceeding filed in Florence in June against the unauthorized use of the mark Elisabetta Gucci made by Mr. Ziller, Formitalia S.r.l., Mirabili S.r.l. and Formitalia Group S.p.A. was decided in its favour.

According to the court's order, all the counterparts have to immediately cease any use of the mark at issue as well as of the domain name “Elisabetta Gucci” for any business or advertising purpose. The court furthermore imposed a penalty for any possible violation of its order, awarded Gucci legal fees and ordered the publication of the interim decision in two newspapers and a magazine.

Gucci welcomes this decision, which represents a relevant precedent in terms of intellectual property protection and will hopefully act as a significant deterrent for those who intend to unlawfully license or commercially exploit the Gucci trademarks.

Use of the mark Elisabetta Gucci by the above mentioned parties has caused customer confusion and has been harmful to Gucci's business and well-known reputation. Gucci will always act vigorously against product counterfeiting or intellectual property infringements.

Gucci does not intend to let the power of its brand be diluted by counterfeiting or intellectual property infringements. The Florentine House is fully committed to maintain and protect its intellectual property rights throughout the world in order to ensure that its unique heritage be strongly preserved and fully respected.
