US: Nervous Tattoo triumphs in fake goods case
Clothing designer Christian Audigier and his company Nervous Tattoo have won a preliminary injunction against JLJ (aka Joy Jeans) and related defendants for allegedly selling fake apparel under the Ed Hardy name.
According to documents filed in the US District Court in California, Joy engaged in trademark and copyright infringement with the knockoff range. The company has been banned from making, selling or advertising the goods in future.
Nervous Tattoo is seeking monetary damage against Joy and other infringers.
Audigier said his company views counterfeiting seriously and a number of domestic and international lawsuits in the pipeline to address an increase in such activity.
