A European court has ruled for Adidas an infringement case against a Belgian footwear company. Adidas had been seeking to block two trademarks for parallel stripes on shoes filed by a Belgian firm, Shoe Branding Europe, saying it infringed on Adidas’ iconic three-stripe design.

According to a statement from the Luxembourg-based General Court,  the “use of the marks applied for would take unfair advantage of the repute of adidas’ mark.” The court also said Shoe Branding Europe “had not demonstrated the existence of due cause for the use of the marks applied for.”

The decision by the Luxembourg-based General Court, Europe’s second-highest, affirmed earlier rulings by the European Union Intellectual Property Office, or E.U.I.P.O, according to Reuters.
