The Danish designer Ilse Jacobsen has lost a copyright infringement case over a rubber boot against Morsø Sko Import, an importer of unbranded shoes, according to a report on the national TV channel TV2. She had previously applied for a verdict from both Danish Maritime and Commercial Court, and the country’s Western National Court but lost both times. She has now lost the case in the Supreme Court, which established that Jacobsen’s RUB 1 shoe cannot be described as a work of art that deserved protection under copyright law. It also ruled that Morsø’s rubber boot differs from that of Jacobsen to such an extent that it doesn’t constitute a violation of her marketing rights. Ilse Jacobsen has to pay 75,000 Danish kroner (€10,059-$11,380) to Morsø to compensate for its legal costs.
