Louis Vuitton Malletier & Monastery Hill reach amicable resolution

25
Jun '09
Louis Vuitton Malletier (Louis Vuitton) announced it has recently entered into a settlement agreement with Hertzberg, Ernst & Sons, doing business as Monastery Hill Bindery (Monastery Hill), regarding Monastery Hill's sales of faux leather good products for the hospitality industry, including hotel guest room binders and note pad covers, that Louis Vuitton alleged copied and used Louis Vuitton's Epi registered trademarks.

Under the terms of the Consent Injunction entered in the United States District Court of the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, Louis Vuitton is recognized as the owner of the valid and incontestable registered Epi trademarks, and Monastery Hill has agreed, without admitting any wrongdoing, to cease the sale of the products, destroy all remaining product stock, and to avoid any unauthorized, counterfeit or infringing use of the Epi trademarks in the future. The settlement and Consent Injunction resolve all disputes between the two parties over Monastery Hill's faux leather products.

Nathalie Moulle-Berteaux, Intellectual Property Director of Louis Vuitton, said, “We are very pleased to have reached this amicable resolution with Monastery Hill, which has recognized our Epi trademarks and has agreed to cease the sale of their so-called 'epi' products we asserted infringed our Epi trademarks. We further appreciate Monastery Hill's commitment to respecting our Epi trademarks, which are the essence of our Epi collection. This agreement allows us to protect our customers from confusion.”

Louis Vuitton first introduced the Epi Leather collection in 1985 as its first permanent leather goods collection. Epi Leather is used on handbags as shown below and other leather accessories and is distinguished by a unique texture of elevated, two-tone wavy lines, with a darker shade displayed on the elevated portions of the wavy lines and a lighter shade serving as the background, lower surface.
