A judge has barred the ex-wife and daughter of Italian fashion scion Paolo Gucci from selling the family name to market handbags, gelato and other goods.

In a decision Wednesday in federal court, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman ruled in favor of Manhattan-based Gucci America. The company had sued Jenny and Gemma Gucci for trademark infringement in 2007.

The judge concluded in a written verdict following a non-jury trial that the defendants had "willfully infringed and diluted the Gucci trademarks" by entering into a licensing agreement that resulted in a "confusingly similar" line of products using their names and mimicking Gucci's classic, green-red-green color scheme.
