Christian Dior wages war with online counterfeiters

Luxury brand Christian Dior has targeted a number of online counterfeiters in a trademark infringement lawsuit.

In a filing at the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division on September 28, Dior claimed that the defendants had sold counterfeit clothes and fashion accessories featuring the Dior trademarks.

“The defendants create the defendant internet stores by the hundreds and design them to appear to be selling genuine Dior products, while actually selling counterfeit Dior products to unknowing consumers,” said the filing.
