Chan-Sung Jung, a mixed martial artist, has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against DBV Distribution Inc. and Does 1-10, alleging they obtained profit through the use of infringing trademarks, unfair competition and false advertising.

The plaintiff expressed his dissatisfaction as the infringement has caused him economic damages, customer confusion and losses sequel to the selling of the infringed T-shirts and other products bearing a minimally altered version of Jung’s image, without any consent or permission from the plaintiff.

Jung seeks trial by jury, more than $750 for each unauthorized use, all the defendants’ profits, gains and advantages, attorney fees and costs, injunctive relief, punitive damages, and all other relief the court deems appropriate.
