'Louis Vuitton Fried Chicken' Owner Fined In South Korea

A fried chicken restaurant businessman in Seoul, South Korea was ordered to pay 14.5 million won (USD 12,900) to the Louis Vuitton company after using the brand for his restaurant. The owner, identified as Kim gave the name, Louis Vuitton Dak. Tongdak means 'chicken' in Korean. He has also printed the Louis Vuitton logo in a napkin and box packaging for takeaway orders.

Louis Vuitton filed a lawsuit last September, saying that their image and name affected because the chicken restaurant copycat their name without permission. After being sued in September, Kim change the name to ''chaLouisvui tondak' but it still does not satisfy Louis Vuitton until they finally won the lawsuit today.
