aus meiner Besprechung auf MARQUES Class 46 Blog:
While the decision may be correct from a strictly trade mark law perspective, I am not sure whether Yves Saint Laurent does not have an unfair competition claim. It can hardly be denied that the "SL Skinny Love" sign is a riff on the (well known, in my opinion) YSL monogram. Anybody remotely interested in fashion will recognize the allusion, in particular because Hedi Slimane is the creative director for Yves Saint Laurent since 2012, and Hedi Slimane is well known for his slim-cut (skinny) men's suits.
