Paris Hilton’s new shoe collection will get her in legal trouble; a New York shoe company says Hilton’s new footwear line is a complete ripoff.
Last week, a company called Gwyneth Shoes filed a suit in Seattle suing Paris over part of her new shoe design – a heart-shaped pad on the insole. The company claims the idea was theirs first.
Gwyneth Shoes claims they filed to patent the heart cushion idea back in 2007, months before Paris’ shoes launched in February 2008. Now, Gwyneth Shoes is suing for trademark and patent infringement and is asking Paris to give drop all the infringing shoes from her line.
