Trademark News & Screw-ups VERSACE GETS SUED FOR TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT

This is actually a lot less baseless than the article makes it out to be. Just because the motif of a "lion's head with a door knocker in its mouth isn’t exactly a fresh and original design concept" doesn't mean that it cannot serve as a strong trademark when applied to something other than door knockers. Here's an analogy. A bitten apple isn't exactly a fresh and original design concept either. Yet see how long you'll be able to make and sell phones under such logo! Versace's lawyers probably have some good counter-arguments to the claim, but to label, No Fixed Abode's lawsuit as frivolous right out of the gate is an overstatement.
