A settlement agreement has been reached following the lawsuit filed by Milkcrate against Adidas in August claiming that a t-shirt design sold by the brand in partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA) infringed its trademark. Both parties has reached a settlement agreement
The New York City based fashion brand, Milkcrate Athletics and its German competitor, Adidas has reached an undisclosed agreement asking the court to dismiss the suit in a filing at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
In its original complaint, Milkcrate alleged that the design was deceptively copied from its founder, Aaron LaCrate.
Milkcrate reportedly said the resemblance between its own designs and that of Adidas’ t-shirts was uncanny and undeniable.
