LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles photographer claims a women's clothing retailer and a screen-printing company used his photograph without permission on garments.
Estevan Oriol filed a complaint on Aug. 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Toska Inc. and J.S. Park Creative Inc., doing business as Vintage Point, alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages from having his photograph used without his consent. The plaintiff holds Toska Inc. and J.S. Park Creative Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly created a T-shirt which features plaintiff's photograph.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunction against the defendants from further infringing plaintiff's copyright, statutory damages, actual damages, all legal fees and interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Nate Kleinman of The McCulloch Law Firm PLLC in New York and Andrew Delahunt of Law Office of Andrew Delahunt in West Hollywood.
