Mccartney Allowed To Go Ahead With Perfume Launch

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's daughter STELLA has won the first round in her court battle with the wife of U2 star BONO in a dispute over one of the fashion designer's fragrances.
MCCartney has been granted the right to launch her new perfume this weekend (begs22Aug09) after Bono's wife Ali Hewson lodged a bid to block its debut in British stores.
Hewson is currently suing MCCartney for trademark infringement over claims the title of her new scent, STELLANUDE, is similar to her own company Nude Brands Ltd., which she runs with entrepreneur Bryan Meehan.
According to the lawsuit, Nude Brands Ltd. holds the registered trademark for the capitalised word NUDE.
She had hoped to block the perfume's release as the trademark infringement case continues - but a judge has turned down that request.
On Thursday (20Aug09) British judge Christopher Floyd ruled against Hewson's bid, insisting an injunction could cause "massive disruption" to MCCartney's business.
The dispute over the trademark is set to go to court in London this autumn (09).
