London (ANI): English fashion designer Stella McCartney has been granted the legal permission to launch her perfume after she was taken to court by U2 star Bono"s wife Ali Hewson over trademark infringement.
Hewson claimed that Sir Paul McCartney's daughter"s use of the word 'nude' for her own variety of perfume called 'Stella Nude" amounted to copyright infringement, as she owns a company named Nude Brands Ltd.
But a judge turned down Hewson"s bid to block the perfume from making its debut in British stores, reports the Daily Express. Judge Christopher Floyd said an injunction could cause "massive disruption" to McCartney's business. The case is set to go to court in London this autumn.
