2nd Circuit sides with Ralph Lauren in polo player logo fight

The court found that the U.S. Polo Association does not have the right to use a “double horseman” logo on men’s fragrances

The 2nd Circuit on Monday gave a victory to Ralph Lauren Corp. in the fashion company’s long-running legal battle with the U.S. Polo Association (USPA), ruling that the latter cannot use a “double horseman” logo on its fragrances because it too closely resembles Ralph Lauren’s trademarks.

In 1984, the USPA won the right to use a polo player logo on its retail goods, as long as the image was not likely to cause confusion with Ralph Lauren, which has featured its own famous polo player image on fragrances since 1978.
