Counterfeiters Beware!

At least one luxury fashion retailer has had it with knock offs.

Legal experts say a lawsuit filed by Louis Vuitton against a Toronto flea market could potentially give brands a long-awaited hand in cracking down on counterfeiters.

If successful, the suit would allow companies to go after mall and flea market landlords whose vendors infringe on trademark rights.

Karen MacDonald, a Vancouver lawyer who specializes in trademarks and patents, says that would give companies an added weapon in an ongoing and often frustrating battle against counterfeit goods.

She says the ability to hold landlords accountable for their vendors’ activities is already established under U-S law and Canada is seen as lagging behind.
