Conviction in fake Puma case upheld
The first conviction in the fake Puma case brought against a Swan Street boutique owner will stand.
This was the ruling of the Court of Appeal yesterday as it dismissed the appeal brought on behalf of store owner Grenville Ricardo Delpeache.
Delpeache, of Passage Gardens, Passage Road, St Michael, and the owner of Ouch Boutique, had earned himself the dubious distinction, in February 2018, of being the first man to be convicted in Barbados for selling fake gear.
He had been found guilty by Magistrate Graveney Bannister that with a view to gain for himself or another or with intent to cause loss to the registered owner of the Puma trademark, and without the consent of the owner of the Puma trademark, he sold a pair of Puma Fenty Creeper sneakers, on May 3, 2017, which bore a sign identical to and which was likely to be taken for the Puma registered trademark.
