The ruling by the European Court has banned the Tesco supermarket chain from selling reduced-price designer goods. In a landmark case the ruling centres on when the manufacturer loses the right to decide how its trademarked goods are distributed.

Levi Strauss have won the case to protect the status of their clothing as they were worried that their 'exclusiveness' could be damaged if they are displayed next to food items!

The problem now is that other companies such as Asda, Safeway, etc., are now likely to be left with large stocks of goods that they can't sell (unless, of course, Levi Strauss will buy them back?).

So it seems that the prices of designer items will remain high and affordable by a minority. What do you think, a good decision or another classic example of rip-off Britain?
