Under Armour Files Federal Lawsuit Against Skechers

Under Armour filed a federal lawsuit against Skechers, alleging that the company violated copyright protections by copying the look and feel of its "Protect This House. I Will" ads - right down to the music. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore this week, alleges that Skechers' sports circuit training commercial "slavishly copies" Under Armour's "highly promoted, successful, and recognized" ads. Under Armour asked the court to halt the Skechers commercials and order its competitor to pay unspecified damages, plus profits Skechers received from the ad. Under Armour has not shied away from litigation to defend its brand and advertising. It sued Nike over its use of "I will" as a slogan in advertising. In the new suit, Under Armour says the Skechers commercial "consists of similarly lit, close-up images shown in rapid succession, of athletes in cavernous warehouses and gymnasiums (amid gritty surroundings consisting of cracked concrete and worn and/or peeling paint) taking on rigorous physical workouts, such as climbing a pegboard, whipping heavy ropes, boxing, and jumping hurdles".
