A technological company, Tile, Inc. has filed a lawsuit in the New Jersey District Court against 888 Digital Inc. for trademark infringement.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendant promoted and sold Tiles products without permission and not an authorized member of its reseller network.

Tile reportedly said that Tile sells its products using the “Tile” brand and had registered the “TILE” trademark and using it since 2014.

According to Tile, the defendant offers for sale and sells non-genuine Tile products bearing this registered trademark without Tile’s warranty.

Tile reportedly said that 888 Digital marketed its products as brand new thereby deceiving customers by selling liquidated, used, or even potentially stolen Tile products on its website.

The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendants’ actions have caused confusion, lots of damages especially to Tile’s reputation and goodwill because customers believe they are buying a legitimate Tile product when they are not.

Tile alleges that the defendants have willfully and knowingly infringed on its trademark, unfair competition, and false advertising violations, as well as unfair and deceptive trade practices.

Tile seeks injunctive relief, an award for damages, costs and fees, pre and post-judgment interest, as well as other relief as determined by the court.

The case is pending.
