The Maker of the Birkin Hermès Bags Called MetaBirkin NFT Trademark Violation

Birkin Hermès Bags

Hermès has recently spoken out against the NFT collection named MetaBirkins. The company which is behind the world-famous line of Birkin handbags called it a violation of the brand.

A regular Birkin bag can be sold for anywhere from 9,000 to 500,000 dollars or even more. In 2012, Sotheby’s published a list of the 6 most expensive Birkin bags made by Hermès. Back then, the auction house estimated the diamond-encrusted Sac Bijou Birkin handbag at 2 million dollars.

MetaBirkin NFT Trademark

The MetaBirkins NFT collection that is placed at OpenSea is the work of Mason Rothschild. The line consists of faux fur, as well as colorful versions of the Birkin handbag. MetaBirkins is the digital artist’s second collection on the Birkin theme. The first one, called Baby Birkins, was also a game on a Birkin purse and was designed together with Eric Ramirez.

OpenSea that is considered the largest NFT marketplace (13.25 billion dollars) has recently received criticism concerning counterfeit art on the site. Oddly enough, Rothschild made a similar complaint when he found out that his designs were being copied and sold.

Hermès says the problem with the bags is that it can confuse customers and make them think this product is an official Hermès release when it is not. Another problem is money. According to OpenSea, the MetaBirkins collection raised 230 ETH, which is equivalent to about 936,000 dollars. This is almost 1 million dollars (or 100 bags) Hermès will not see unless it goes to court.
