In September 2015, the New York Federal District Court found that Cosco Wholesale infringed the famous Tiffany & Co. TIFFANY mark by selling "Tiffanyy" engagement rings. The court entered summary judgement on infringement despite that Costco Wholesale had submitted "substantial" evdience that the TIFFANY mark was generic. The decision is on appeal. The outcome on appeal will be closely monitored by retailers throughout the country.
