Monsieur Guerlain is silenced by LVMH

Apparently Monsieur Guerlain's lovely tribute site has been summarily shut down at the behest of LVMH over alleged trademark infringement. To all appearances this represents cold-blooded and inexplicable treatment of an individual who had been the brand's biggest cheerleader. Although the house is legally entitled to protect the Guerlain name, one wonders what possessed prudent businesspersons to quash a source of history of the brand, information about new releases and exquisite photographs of their products. If you have a blog, please add your voice to the many who have already questioned this bizarre action.
