In 1997 Bacup introduced the Redfoot Folding Shoe, which, as the name indicates, is a shoe that you can fold up. This product became an instant sales success. Fortunately Bacup registered their shoe as a European design.
When their competitor Shoeland brought a similar shoe on the market Bacup was easily able to stop them based on the design rights. The court not only issued an injuction but Shoeland has to pay € 50,000.- in penalties for every day the infringement continues.
