Associate Davide Schiavetti will speak at a Fédération Internationale des Conseils en Propriété Intellectuelle's (FICPI) webinar titled "IP in fashion - is 'Ugg' generic?" on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 9:00 am ET. The webinar is the second in FICPI's Focus 45 series.
In conversation with moderator Louis-Pierre Gravelle of IP firm Bereskin & Parr in Canada, Davide will discuss the recent Federal Circuit decision, and a potential Supreme Court appeal, on the case between Deckers Outdoors Corp. and Australian Leather, that held that Australia Leather’s sale of its sheepskin “ugg” boots in the US infringed Deckers’ “Ugg” trademark, despite the fact that “ugg[ly boot]” is a generic term in Australia.
