Chesebrough-Pond's Is Sued

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Cosmetically Sealed Industries, Mount Vernon, N.Y., filed suit here against Chesebrough-Pond's USA, Greenwich, Conn., seeking $17 million in damages and charging the company with trademark infringement.

The trademark in question is a logo of a pair of red lips and the product name Sealed With A Kiss, a lipstick fixative made by CSI. This trademark logo was infringed, CSI claims, when Chesebrough used the expression "seal it with a kiss" and a pair of red lips on header cards for displays of its Cutex lip products.

The suit said the Sealed With A Kiss product title was registered as a trademark in 1976 by Forsythe Cosmetic Group. When CSI acquired Forsythe in 1993, it added the red lips logo to the trademark.

Eileen Sharkey, director of public affairs at Chesebrough-Pond's, called CSI's suit "completely frivolous. No one's rights have been infringed." Sharkey said Cutex used the lips logo and "seal it with a kiss" slogan in the early 1990s on displays only, not on product packages, and that Chesebrough-Pond's will "fight this suit out in court."
