- The creator of the colorful Crocs rubber clogs made a delicate slider to the right. His design is not unique.
Crocs has been making a fierce battle with the judge with industry leaders such as Dawgs who provide similar clogs since 2006. However, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has rejected Crocs' claim.
That's what Footwear News says on the basis of the ruling. According to the US government agency, the Croc design is not original. A company came a long time before Crocs produced the clogs with a similar design.
Crocs, headquartered in US Colorade, will close 160 stores in the next two years. There are still four hundred branches. Crocs' sales fell by 3.3% in the last quarter to $ 313 million, in the first quarter sales fell by 10%.
The company reported to appeal to protect its design. According to the group, this body, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, has just made a statement in favor of Crocs.
