LOS ANGELES – A South Korean business claims one of its textile designs was used in products without its authorization.
C&SM Int'l filed a complaint on Jan. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against 6two Apparel Group LTD, Burlington Coat Factory Direct Corp. and Does 1-10 alleging copyright infringement.
