LOS ANGELES – Three corporations are being accused of manufacturing items using a Los Angeles company's copyrighted fabrics without permission.
Star Fabrics Inc. filed a complaint on Aug. 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against The Buckle Inc., Devine Corp., Ye-Eun Inc., Krazy Kat Sportswear LLC and Does 1 through 10 alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages to its business from the infringement of its copyrighted fabric designs. The plaintiff holds The Buckle Inc., Devine Corp., Ye-Eun Inc., Krazy Kat Sportswear LLC and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly manufactured garments using fabrics featuring plaintiff's slightly modified designs.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to enjoin the defendants from further infringing plaintiff's designs, award all profits plus losses to plaintiff, statutory damages, all legal fees and interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Stephen M. Doniger, Scott A. Burroughs and Howard S. Han of Doniger/Burroughs in Venice.
