Law360 reported on Kelley Drye’s representation of Ralph Lauren in the article “Decades-Long Polo Trademark Battle Resumes In NY.” The article reports that Polo Ralph Lauren and United States Polo Association (“USPA”) have returned to New York federal court for another dispute over the use of a restricted “double horseman” logo. Polo Ralph Lauren and USPA have been litigating over the use of the “double horseman” by USPA since 1984. Law360 noted that most recently, Polo Ralph Lauren claimed that USPA “violated a 2012 injunction against using the mark in combination with any name or object for sales purposes by using it to promote its flagship Times Square store and the goods sold there and online.” Polo Ralph Lauren claimed that USPA’s use of the mark is increasingly similar to the Polo Ralph Lauren style.
The article notes that Kelley Drye is representing Ralph Lauren in this matter. The team on the case includes partners John M. Callagy, William R. Golden, and Andrea L. Calvaruso, and associate Melissa E. Byroade.
