Burberry barks at check copyMonday, 19 October 2009
The infamous Burberry check is the subject of a legal row between the luxury British fashion house and pet accessories chain Pets At Home.
Burberry is suing the retail chain claiming material used on items such as dog coats and baskets sold in the retailers' 250 stores had used a plaid design amounting to a copyright infringement. Products are understood to have been pulled from shops, but the dispute has yet to be resolved.
Last week, Burberry revealed six month revenues up 14%, with its signature check – an emblem for the fashion house for almost 100 years – continuing throughout its range.
