Dear M. Louboutin: Oh...Deer! Wants Your Sole

Pirates are nothing if not predictable.  "It" bag?  Knock it off.  Raves on the red carpet?  Sounds like prom dress material. 

And when Christian Louboutin finally took steps to secure trademark protection for his signature red soles, his most dedicated imitators were bound to object.  Deer Stags, the parent company of the Oh...Deer! brand, has not yet set forth its attack on Louboutin's trademark application.  Last week, however, Deer Stags received a 90-day extension of the deadline for filing an opposition.  Can Counterfeit Chic call 'em or what?

Of course, other companies will be watching the results of this particular battle as well.  See you in November, folks.
