Chiara ferragni slips on Moon boot

The Court of Milan has stated that Chiara Ferragni, the worldwide famous influencer with almost 23milion followers on Instragram, has copied the iconic Moon Boot design to produce her new snow boots.
The Court has stated that the squared shape of Moon Boot, designed back in 1969, can be considered “an industrial design which shall therefore be protected via copyright”, creating a strong precedent for moon Boot and whoever was thinking of reproducing its famous shape.
The Judge has therefore ordered for all eisting models to be withdrawn from the market and for the influencer to pay to Tecnica Group substantial damages, which have been quantified in a private agreement between the parties.
