LOS ANGELES — A California corporation has filed suit against a retailer for alleged copyright infringement.
KC & HC Inc. filed a complaint on Aug. 23 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Forever 21 Inc. and Does 1 through 10, alleging that they reproduced fabrics bearing the plaintiff's designs.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages from having its copyrighted design used without its consent. The plaintiff holds Forever 21 Inc. and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly manufactured and distributed garments through their online and retail stores that contain similar designs to the plaintiff's fabrics.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to enjoin the defendant from further infringing upon the plaintiff's designs, award all profits and statutory damages to the plaintiff, all legal fees and interest and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by C. Yong Jeong and Amy Choe of Jeong & Likens L.C. in Los Angeles.
