With the advent of the Apple Watch, it seems the tech giants have finally caught up with their original intent to take over the world of fashion.
Now, in the latest instalment of this new series, we’ve got a roundup of some of the most ridiculous fashion lawsuits you might be facing.
In the US, you can get sued for wearing your favourite pair of Nike Air Max models.
A court in New York has ruled that the shoe company is liable for $1 billion in damages.
The case stems from a dispute over the size of a pair of sneakers made by Air Max, which had a mid-foot measurement that was too big for most people.
Nike appealed the ruling and won, but the company has not made a public apology or released a statement on the matter.
As a result, Nike has been forced to make more than $600 million in sales for the last five years.
This isn’t the first time the shoe giant has faced legal woes.
In 2012, Nike sued its rival in the US for copying the designs for the Air Max 2 sneaker, and lost.
The company has also settled a lawsuit in the UK, but has yet to pay a cent of the £3.5 million (£2.5m) fine the British court ordered the company to pay.
You might be more likely to be sued over a pair the size and style of your passport, but it’s not uncommon to get sued over the same size or shape of your car.
In 2013, the car maker Volkswagen was fined $25 million for allegedly stealing designs from other car makers and modifying the vehicle to look like a VW Passat.
The UK’s High Court ruled in 2015 that car maker Daimler is liable over a similar issue, as well as over other designs that it allegedly copied.
The court found that Daimlers original design for a Mercedes S550 SUV, which was originally designed for a Daimels S400 SUV, is also a direct copy of Daimles own Mercedes S400.
The UK also has a number of cases in which companies have sued each other over the shape of their products.
In 2012, it was revealed that British-based design firm Dior was sued over their logo, which looked like the logo of the United States.
While there’s no word yet on whether these cases will result in any significant fines, they certainly don’t help the companies reputation.
