I begin this episode with a brief history of the Louis Vuitton fashion house, then I go over a few trademarks and patents that Louis Vuitton owns, next I conduct my legal analysis into a few recent intellectual property parody lawsuits involving Louis Vuitton (Louis Vuitton v. Haute Diggity Dog , Louis Vuitton v. My Other Bag , Louis Vuitton v. MGA Entertainment ). I conclude the episode with a phone interview with a former Louis Vuitton sales associate who gives us some further intel into the brand! 1.
