Converse took the words back

Converse has decided to scale back its anti-plagiarism efforts. In October last year, the American group immediately sued 31 shoe manufacturers, which, in its opinion, copied certain elements of the legendary Chuck Taylor All Star model. Recently, the management of the brand decided to withdraw some of the claims: on February 6, the case against H&M was officially closed, on February 10 it was possible to reach agreements with Zulily, and on February 11 - with Ralph Lauren (the company pledged to stop selling 36 models of sports shoes that were the subject of the proceedings, and also to destroy all materials related to their development and production). On February 23, it became known that the case against Tory Burch was dropped.
