Chanel Inc. Shuts down Hundreds of Replica Handbag Websites

26 Oct

I don’t usually do news stories on my blog, but I was shocked that there was only one small story on the news about this today and I couldn’t find any online articles about this at all.

Hundreds of replica handbag and accessory website have been shut down.

Hundreds of replica handbag websites have been shut down and replaced with this court document.

While I was browsing through accessory websites for fashion ideas, I noticed one website redirected to this: http://servingnotice.com/sdv/ Chanel, Inc. has  filed a complaint against replica handbag, shoe, clothing, etc. online stores who are using their logo without their permission. As  a result of the complaint,  hundreds of replica websites have been shut down and have been replaced with this page: http://servingnotice.com/sdv/

If you scroll down in the court document to pages 17-32, it lists all the online stores that have been shut down. These online stores sell replica designer goods such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Hermes,  Chloe, etc.

    I have been in the handbag business for years, and I have never agreed with totaly copying a bag. It is infringement
