The debate will rage on, and has
implications well beyond casual
clothes (Levi Strauss was joined in its
lawsuit by Zino Davidoff, a perfume
maker). The question at its heart is not
whether brands need to control how
they are sold to protect their image,
but whether it is the job of the courts to
help them do this. Gucci, an Italian
clothes label whose image was being
destroyed by loose licensing and overexposure in discount stores, saved
itself not by resorting to the courts but
by ending contracts with third-party
suppliers, controlling its distribution
better and opening its own stores. It is
now hard to find cut-price Gucci
anywhere.

Most investigators concur that certain facial expressions suggest the
same emotions in a people. Moreover, people in diverse cultures
recognize the emotions manifested by the facial expressions. In
classic research Paul Ekman took photographs of people exhibiting
the emotions of anger, disgust, fear, happiness, and sadness.
He then asked people around the world to indicate what emotions
were being depicted in them. Those queried ranged from European
college students to members of the Fore, a tribe that dwells in the
New Guinea highlands. All groups including the Fore, who had
almost no contact with Western culture, agreed on the portrayed
emotions. The Fore also displayed familiar facial expressions when
asked how they would respond if they were the characters in stories
that called for basic emotional responses. Ekman and his colleagues
morerecently obtained similar results in a study of ten cultures in
which participants were permitted to report that multiple emotions
were shown by facial expressions. The participants generally agreed
on which two emotions were being shown and which emotion was
more intense.
Joy and sadness are experienced by people in all cultures around the
world, but how can we tell when other people are happy or
despondent? It turns out that the expression of many emotions may
be universal. Smiling is apparently a universal sign of friendliness
and approval. Baring the teeth in a hostile way, asnoted by Charles
Darwin in the nineteenth century, may be a universe sign of anger.
As the originator of the theory of evolution, Darwin believed that the
universal recognition of facial expressions would have survival value.
For example, facial expressions could signal the approach of
enemies (or friends) in the absence of language.
Psychological researchers generally recognize that facial
expressions reflect emotional states. Infact, various emotional
states give rise to certain patterns of electrical activity in the facial
muscles and in the brain. The facial-feedback hypothesis argues,
however, that the causal relationship between emotions and facial
expressions can also work in the opposite direction. According to this
hypothesis, signals from the facial muscles (“feedback”) are
sent back to emotion centers of the brain, and so a person‘s facial
expression can influence that person’s emotional state.
