A company that sells Trunki suitcases has lost a court battle with a rival over designs of ride-on luggage.
Five Supreme Court judges analysed a dispute between Magmatic, which sells Trunki suitcases, and PMS International, which sells Kiddee Case luggage, at a hearing in November.
They have now ruled against Magmatic.
Magmatic said Kiddee Case suitcases decorated to look like animals or insects infringed registered design rights.
Lawyers said the ruling will have “profound implications in the design world”.
