Sometimes It Pays to Be Paris: Paris Hilton’s Lawsuit Against International Perfume Palace
On October 10, 2012, in a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Paris Hilton and Parlux Fragrances LLC filed a lawsuit against International Perfume Palace, Inc. (“IPP”) claiming infringement of U.S. Trademark No. 3,059,587, which covers the mark Paris Hilton for use with fragrances, and U.S. Design Patent No. D518,382, which covers the design of the bottles used for Ms. Hilton’s eponymous perfume, as well claims of trade dress infringement, trademark dilution and unfair competition under both state and federal law.
The lawsuit alleges that IPP exhibited at a trade show a new line of fragrances it is currently selling or offering for sale named “Paris, Paris” that are virtually identical to the designs of Ms. Hilton’s fragrance bottles and gift sets. This copying is the basis for all of the claims in the lawsuit.
