While some might say the colorful plastic clogs known as Crocs clearly infringe on any sense of style, the Federal Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled that the shoe company's competitors are actually infringing on the Crocs patented design. Wednesday's decision reversed an International Trade Commission ruling. It's a big win for Crocs' lawyer James Otteson, who left Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati to start his own firm, Agility IP Law, after arguing the appeal.
