LOS ANGELES – A textile company alleges one of its registered designs was used without its permission for clothing.
Novelty Textiles Inc. filed a complaint on May 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against PPLA Clothing LLC, Century 21 Department Stores LLC, Lord & Taylor LLC, and Does 1 through 10 alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages from having its 2158 design copied without its consent. The plaintiff holds PPLA Clothing LLC, Century 21 Department Stores LLC, Lord & Taylor LLC and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly sold garments made out of fabric that bear plaintiff's designs.
