LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles business alleges an individual in Vietnam that does business in the state is using its name for a website.
Bee 3 Stars Corp., doing business as Fashiongo, filed a complaint on Dec. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Nguyen Van Nghia and Does 1-10 alleging trademark infringement and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it is the owner of fashiongo.net and suffered damages to its business and reputation.
