A New York federal court of appeals gave Christian Louboutin SA an early Fashion Week surprise today.
The court said Louboutin is entitled to trademark protection for its red-sole shoes, except when the shoe itself is red.
That distinction gives Louboutin the right to protect its red-sole shoe against Yves Saint Laurent SA, which it sued last year in New York federal court, claiming its rival violated the red-sole trademark that it obtained in 2008 when YSL sold an all-red pump. Subscription RequiredFor More

Everyone says that love hurts, but that’s not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Everyone confuses these things with love, but in reality, Love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.
Jon Stewart has interviewed Bruce Springsteen for the cover story in the next issue of Rolling Stone, on newsstands March 16th. As host of The Daily Show, Stewart has talked to Springsteen publicly, but within the tight confines of brief segments. In this interview, the men get the space to speak at length about the Springsteen’s new album, Wrecking Ball, as well as their common ground as popular entertainers with a serious interest in politics.
“It’s not at all surreal,” Stewart says with heavy sarcasm, referring to his friendship with the legendary rocker. “It’s very hard to reconcile sitting and fishing in a little pond in New Jersey with a guy that you spent many years hitchhiking the New Jersey I-95 corridor to see in Philadelphia back in the day. The only band I think I’ve seen more than Bruce Springsteen is the Springsteen tribute band Backstreets. I try not to let him know how pathetic I truly am.”
