After winning a counterfeit legal battle in Italy earlier this year, Supreme has now lost another case in the country. The latest case was focused on a brand called “Supreme Italia”, which had been registered alongside “Supreme Spain” by an organization called International Brand Firm. Three websites controlled by the company that were used to sell Supreme-branded pieces were seized last month, but have now been released; check out two of the websites below.
The finding also means that a range of Supreme-branded items intended to be sold in Spain — over 3,000 T-shirts and 150 other pieces — have been released by financial police in the Italian town of Andria. The Italian court’s conclusion explains the decision: “following the lawfulness regulation, for an action to be a crime it is not sufficient the confusion between the two brands, nor the actual external similarity of the product.”
