Marimekko informs of disagreements concerning Unikko trademark

Marimekko Corporation has received information that Dolce & Gabbana S.r.l. and Dolce & Gabbana Industria S.p.A. have submitted an application to the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) for a declaration of invalidity concerning Marimekko's red figure mark Unikko in classes 24 (Textiles and textile goods) and 25 (Clothing and headgear). Marimekko has a right to respond to the application on or before 25 September 2008.

As part of the regular monitoring and protection of its intellectual property rights, Marimekko has earlier during spring and summer 2008 reacted to the use of a flower pattern in certain products of Dolce & Gabbana.

The said use has not been authorized by Marimekko and the company has consequently taken action in Germany for the purpose of terminating such use. Based on Marimekko's application, the District Court of Hamburg has resolved on sales and marketing injunction concerning certain Dolce & Gabbana products in Germany. Marimekko is considering further measures in the matter.

Marimekko currently estimates that there are no grounds for Dolce & Gabbana's application for a declaration of invalidity and that the matter does not affect Marimekko's operations or the company's assessment of the outlook for the remainder of 2008 published in the Interim Report of 6 May 2008. Marimekko will continue to monitor and protect its intellectual property rights and will respond to the application within the set time limit.

Marimekko will give further information on the matter primarily within regular disclosure obligations and will publish separate releases only as may be required pursuant to applicable rules.
