Apparently Body Glove Makes More Than Just Aqua Socks

Everyone remember those amazing shoes that were half mesh and half rubber? Yeah, those are called "aqua socks" and they were are awesome. Check out the picture to the left for a refresher. Anyway, I remembered aqua socks as being a product of Body Glove, which I believe they still are, along with some other footwear manufacturers who have joined in the production. The reason I bring this up is because Body Glove has recently been saddled with a lawsuit from Burberry, the famous clothing design company.

The lawsuit by Burberry claims that Body Glove infringed its "check" trademark when Body Glove produced certain cases for the iPhone. You can see the evidence at the links below to make your own decision as to whether or not you (i.e., a consumer) would potentially be confused as to the source of the product.
