The debate over fakes is hitting a cell phone store near you. According to a lawsuit they filed on Friday, Burberry (who also sued an NYC boutique earlier this summer) is alleging that phone case maker Body Glove copied their notorious – and copyrighted – check design. The case in question (above) is so popular, it’s sold out at AT&T stores (we found one for the iPhone on Amazon – buy at your own risk).
If found guilty, Body Glove will have to stop production of their self-proclaimed “Burberry-like” cases, and cover Burberry’s legal bills. But the case begs the question – does anybody think a Burberry lookalike case at a mall kiosk is the real deal? We certainly hope not.
