LOS ANGELES — A California garment maker has filed suit against Active USA Inc., Ragdolls Couture and Does 1 through 10 for alleged copyright infringement of clothing designs.
Star Fabrics Inc. filed a complaint on Aug. 15 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the defendants, alleging that they distributed fabrics that feature the plaintiff's designs.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Star Fabrics Inc. suffered damages to its business from the infringement of the copyrighted designs.
