  1. First they steal the pattern and then they try cancel marimekko’s rights of this over 40 years old world famous iconic print pattern.

    If you find this as repulsive as I do, please tell it to D&G via their web pages.

  2. I don’t understand how this has even arisen, surely you can’t just go round undoing other people’s trademarks and patents? We’re in for a very bad ride if that’s the case.
    Tho if so, presumably Marimmekko could just undo D&Gs and take it back! and maybe the rights to some of their stuff at the same time…
