TORONTO -- A clothing retailer has settled a trademark infringement lawsuit with Canada Goose over its distinctive parkas.
Canada Goose sued International Clothiers Inc. earlier this year, accusing it of making shoddy replicas.
The well-known outerwear manufacturer alleged International Clothiers of intentionally designing a logo and positioning it on jackets to mimic the Canada Goose Arctic Program trademark.
The matter was settled Tuesday, but the terms of the settlement are confidential.
When the lawsuit was filed in January, Canada Goose said it had sold more than $225 million in coats and accessories across Canada since 2005.
International Clothiers is owned by Fairweather Ltd., which reached a deal this year with American chain Target Corp. to stop using the Target name.
