Fashion Giants Sue Swedish Teen
The famed fashion houses of Chanel and Gucci are suing a 15 year old boy from the west coast city of Gothenburg for copyright infringement.
The teen is being sued after Swedish Customs confiscated three packages containing pirated sunglasses, sent from China, and addressed to the boy.
Bengt Eliasson, a legal representative for the House of Chanel, admits to the newspaper ”Metro” that it is unusual to take legal action against a 15 year old boy, but says the alternative is to allow the sunglasses to reach the open market.
The boy denies he is involved and says he has no idea who sent the glasses.
