Do As I Say, Not As I Do
Stussy, a T-shirt company that parodies corporate logos including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and the KISS logo, is evidently suing FreshJive -- a T-shirt company that has chosen to parody Stussy.
Is there a legitimate case for confusion among purchasers of irony-laden clothing, in distinguishing between a company making fun of Chanel and a company making fun of a company making fun of Chanel?
Is FreshJive in the clear here because it clearly labels its parody clothing line "The Mad Parody Series"?
