Lets say your name is Laura Buccellati and your dream has always been to design and sell your own luxury purses and handbags. You are a descendant of the famous, Milan-based jewelry company, Buccellati, which makes high-end jewelry and silver products and sells them worldwide. (In fact, earlier this year, Buccellati released the most expensive bejeweled iPad and iPhone covers ever offered, which list for $485,000 and $208,000, respectively). You have been frustrated with the gorden karakter conduct of the familys business, and you feel unfulfilled in your role there, so you sell your interest and start a new handbag company in Florida called Laura Buccellati LLC. You are not concerned with name brand confusion because there are many similarities in the fashion industry Calvin Klein and Anne Klein and Lloyd Klein, Mark Jacobs and Adam Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg and Egon Von Furstenberg. People really seem to like your handbags and you start to make money. Then the Buccellati company sues you for infringing on their brand.
