LOS ANGELES – A California corporation alleges one of its fabric designs was used without authorization.
Universal Dyeing & Printing Inc. filed a complaint on May 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Meetu Magic Inc., Papillon Eastern Imports Inc., Avenue Stores LLC and Does 1 through 10 alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages from having its UA 13710 design copied without its permission. The plaintiff holds Meetu Magic Inc., Papillon Eastern Imports Inc., Avenue Stores LLC and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly sold or manufactured garments made out of fabrics that bear plaintiff's design.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to enjoin the defendants, all profits, statutory damages, all legal fees, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Stephen M. Doniger, Scott A. Burroughs, and Frank Gregory Casella of Doniger/Burroughs in Venice.
