The Chanel trademark department is CRAZY! I posted my handmade hair clip on Etsy and referred to it as having a ‘Chanel button detail’. Within days, I received an email from Etsy removing the listing for copyright infringement.
Etsy received a notice from Jennifer (firstname.lastname@example.org),
Paralegal for Chanel, Inc (http://www.etsy.com/people/ChanelUSA).
According to the notice, Chanel is the exclusive owner of all rights in
the world famous CHANEL and CC MONOGRAM trademarks and
certain material on Etsy is not authorized by the trademark holder.
Yes, my hair clip with a knock off Chanel button is totally going to put you out of business Chanel. >.>
