Gucci and Guess went to court and duked it out earlier this year, and it’s no surprise Gucci came out on top. The luxury company sued Guess in 2009 for $221 million on grounds of copyright infringement. Guess’ use of similar logos, red and green stripe, and brown and beige colors can be found on certain styles of footwear the brand was selling. Gucci will be awarded $4.7 million and should be enough to cover lawyer fees accumulated throughout this whole court battle. At least Guess is barred from copying their designs ever again. [styleite]
