Wynn Resorts Holdings, based in Las Vegas, has reached a settlement with Resorts World Las Vegas (RWLV), a $4 billion resort being developed by Genting Group, after Wynn sued RWLV for its alleged unauthorized use of Wynn’s “registered and world famous” architectural building design. The lawsuit, filed on December 21, 2018, highlighted RWLV’s alleged use of a “three-dimensional building with concave façade, and curved, bronze glass, coupled with horizontal banding above and between the lines of glass panes.”

The new RWLV hotel is being built directly across the street from the Wynn and Encore hotel casinos. The lawsuit referred to the construction as “substantially and confusingly similar to [Wynn’s design] and copyrighted architectural work.” Wynn claimed the similar architecture would mislead the public into believing the new hotel is associated with Wynn when it is not. It also said the design violated its copyrights and registered trade dress.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, RWLV representatives’ immediate response to the lawsuit was, “Upon completion, RWLV will look dramatically different from Wynn’s properties, dispelling any suggestion that a reasonable consumer could confuse the two resorts for each other.”

Wynn announced on Monday that the companies have since reached a settlement agreement on the trade dress and copyright infringement claims.

“Genting’s Resorts World Las Vegas project will be the launching point for the next generation of integrated resorts, and the aesthetics of the project will play an important role in its future success. While the company believes the design to have had differences with Wynn and Encore’s once fully realized, after further consideration and conversations with the Wynn team, we have directed our design team to make several changes that will clearly differentiate the two properties,” says Michael Levoff, senior vice president of public affairs and development at Genting. “This mutually beneficial settlement will allow Genting to continue to develop Resorts World Las Vegas with minimal impact to cost and the overall project timeline.”
