Calvin Klein accused of patent infringement in yoga pants design

Historically speaking, we do not see a large number of intellectual property lawsuits involving fashion designers. Everyone in Denver and around the world knows that designers copy each other's creations daily, but there is a new trend in the fashion industry where designers are obtaining patents on their designs and then choosing to enforce those patents when they feel another company or designer is infringing on their patent rights. Such is the case with a yoga-apparel company called Lululemon Athletica Inc., which is accusing Calvin Klein Inc. in a lawsuit of infringing on some of its design patents pertaining to its popular "Astro Pant" yoga pants that retail for $98.

Owning patents: the new intellectual property battleground

Intellectual property is considered a driving force behind Google's recent purchase of Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion. In Colorado and elsewhere there has been a mad dash to collect patents, seen as the crown jewel of intellectual property. Google's recent purchase netted 17,000 patents, with another 7,500 pending. Some say Google is playing catch-up, having naively relied previously on its own innovation to gain market share. That made it an easy target for lawsuits claiming infringement of existing patents.
