LOS ANGELES – A Florida man is accused of selling counterfeit BMW parts online.
BMW of North America LLC and Bayerische Motoren Werke AG filed a complaint on Feb. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Michael Chambers and Does 1-10 alleging trademark infringement and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages to their business and reputations. The plaintiffs hold Chambers and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly used eBay.com to distribute counterfeit BMW products.
