The court in Seoul acknowledged that the grooved design is a defining characteristic of RIMOWA products and deserves to be protected from imitation. The court was also of the opinion that the Holly suitcase has a similar grooved design and could be mistaken for a RIMOWA suitcase. To protect consumers from the risk of confusion, the court put a ban on any further distribution or sale of the Holly suitcase.

RIMOWA President & CEO Dieter Morszeck was absolutely delighted with the decision in South Korea: "We couldn't be happier that the court in South Korea acknowledged the brand character of our grooved design and thus ruled in our favor."

Development of RIMOWA's first aluminum suitcase with the signature grooves goes back to 1950. RIMOWA will continue to consistently defend its grooved design -- along with all of its other intellectual property rights -- from imitators.
