By In trademarks On January 19, 2017

Trademark Trial and Appeals Board ruled that Etonic’s stylized E (left) looks too much like Adidas’ famous three stripes. Three stripes on shoes since 1952, national sales in the billions, partnerships with the NBA, UCLA, Stella McCartney, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry…who doesn’t associate three stripes with Adidas?
