Supreme Court grants Trunki right to appeal in lookalike case

Published on: 23rd December 2014

The Supreme Court has granted Magmatic permission to appeal the Court of Appeal order of 10 April 2014.Trunki300

It’s the latest development in a high profile design infringement dispute between Magmatic, the British company behind the Trunki ride-on suitcase, and PMS International, a UK and Hong Kong-based manufacturer.

It will be one of the few design cases to have been heard before the Supreme Court and the first brought by a member of Anti Copying In Design.

Trunki founder, Rob Law, said: “We are very pleased that the Supreme Court Justices have granted us permission to appeal. The decision recognises that there’s an unarguable case to answer. But it also confirms, as we and our supporters have always maintained, that the issue of design protection is of significant public importance.”
