「Injunction claims, Compensatory damages claims, Abandonment
I received an email from an acquaintance on March 4th, 2015 stating,
"I‘m in Paris now, but I found this of Celine"
On March 18th, I sent a letter of warning via content-certified mail
demanding "the suspension of sale and advertisement as well as the
retrieval and disposal of the products, in addition to an explanation.
I subsequently received a response on March 30th from the Director
of the Intellectual Property Department at Louis Vuitton Japan Co.
stating "Celine Co.'s jewelry is produced based on the designs of the
company's Artistic director Phoebe Philo,
indicated work of yours and Celine Co.'s product, such similarities stem
Following this response, I have discussed the matter with Celine's
legal representative through email a dozen or more times, had our
first face-to-face meeting on April 8th, and engaged in discussions
with the CEO of Celine Japan with both parties' lawyers present on
April 30th. celine has claimed only that "it is simply a coincidence"
and has not given any apology whatsoever, which has led me to stop
pursuing a resolution through mutual talks and file suit.
