Polo Trademark Trial

By  | 

A federal jury in New York has decided a legal polo match.

And the final outcome is United States Polo Association and Jordache "three," Polo Ralph Lauren "one."

Ralph Lauren had charged infringement over the use of logos featuring two men playing polo on horses. But a federal jury went with the U.S. Polo Association and Jordache in three of the challenges and with Ralph Lauren on a fourth.

A lawyer for the polo association says the designer merely wanted to "monopolize the marketing when it comes to the image of polo."

The polo association and Jordache are calling the jury's decision a "knockout victory." And they say they will launch a major advertising and marketing campaign using the disputed logos.
