Seeing Red? Louboutin loses the first battle but will he win the war?

Christian Louboutin v. Yves Saint Laurent update:

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero denied Louboutin’s request for a preliminary injunction to prevent the sale of YSL’s red out-soled shoe (featured in YSL’s 2011 Resort Collection).

 
So, while you can still pick this shoe up (here), this is likely not the last we have heard about this case. Louboutin’s lawyer, Harley Lewin of McCarter & English LLP, alluded to this ruling not being the end of the red sole wars, by noting that his firm is still studying the decision.

P.S.
