SEOUL, March 10 (Yonhap) -- Britain's fashion house Burberry said Monday it filed a patent violation suit against SBW, a South Korean underwear maker, with a Seoul court for using its trademark check pattern.
Company officials said they concluded SBW's TRY underwear products were in violation of Burberry's trademark.
"On Jan. 9, the disputed TRY brand underwear products were found on various online shopping malls. We asked SBW to stop selling them via certified mail and phone calls several times, but the company took no measures," a Burberry official said.
