Adidas Three Stripes Trademark Ruled Invalid By EU Court

Reuters reports Adidas’ three-stripes have been ruled invalid as a trademark by a European Union court which said they lacked a distinctive character recognizable throughout the 28-country bloc.

Adidas said its trademark consisted of “three parallel equidistant stripes of equal width applied to the product in whichever direction” but this was challenged by Belgium’s Shoe Branding Europe after a decade-long dispute with Adidas.
