LOS ANGELES — A garment designer has filed suit against a distributor for alleged copyright infringement.
Radix Textile Inc. filed a complaint Sept. 26 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against LF Distribution Holding Inc. and Does 1-10, alleging that the distributors violated copyright law by infringing on a registered intellectual property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Radix Textile Inc. is the copyright holder and owns all rights, title and interest of the design identified as RX-LP358, which was found to have been copied, produced, distributed and sold by the defendants without the plaintiff's permission, thereby causing the plaintiff to suffer substantial damage to its business in the form of diversion of trade, loss of income, dilution and destruction of its value, in an amount estimated to be not less than $150,000.
The plaintiff holds LF Distribution Holding Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly obtained profit at the expense of the plaintiff and distributed an infringing product into the stream of commerce.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in its favor, award profits of defendants from infringement, attorney's fees, interest, costs of suit and further relief as the court may deem just. It is represented by K. Tom Kohan of Kohan Law Firm in Los Angeles.
