American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. today announced that it has won a preliminary injunction against Payless ShoeSource, Inc. in a trademark infringement and unfair competition lawsuit.

All that suing comes out of Payless use of the AMERICAN EAGLE mark for footwear and bags.

The ruling now requires Payless to adopt a clear disclaimer stating that AMERICAN EAGLE by Payless is not affiliated with AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS.

AEO contends that the discount shoe chain is deceiving consumers by portraying itself as the owner of “the youth fashion brand American Eagle®” and indicating that it is selling genuine AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS merchandise when in fact it is not.

Shame on you, Payless!
