LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles textile company alleges its copyrighted design was used by four entities without its permission.
Jitrade Inc. filed a complaint on Aug. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Zenu Fashion Inc., Sean Lee, Vanilla Monkey LTD, Seok Eun Kang and Does 1-10 alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 22, 2015, it was granted registration to a copyrighted design tagged as SND1507_39A. It alleges said subject design was unlawfully copied and sold by the defendants bearing a substantial similarity to the original fabric design, which caused plaintiff to suffer damages to its business.
The plaintiff holds Zenu Fashion Inc., Sean Lee, Vanilla Monkey LTD Seok Eun Kang and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly obtained profits they would not otherwise have realized but for their infringement and infringed on intellectual property with total disregard for the rights of others.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, that the defendants be enjoined from infringing plaintiff’s copyrights, damages, attorneys’ fees, interest, costs of litigation and further legal and equitable relief. It is represented by C. Yong Jeong and Amy Choe of Jeong & Likens LC in Los Angeles.
