U.S. News | Lisa Frank Settles Copyright Infringement Case


Lisa Frank, a Tucson business woman, has settled a copyright lawsuit filed against a Canadian company, Orb Factory alleging the defendant copied her image for their packaging which infringes on her copyright and made her suffer damages and unfair competition.

The suit was filed in 2015 at U.S. District Court in Tucson accusing Orb factory of copying the plaintiff image for packaging to earn money for themselves.

Few details of the settlement were released, but both sides paid their own legal fees, and Orb was ordered to pay $6,200 in jury fees.

The Orb Factory sells a variety of toys to Walmart and Amazon. Their Sticky Mosaics were used as an example in the lawsuit that claims they have a look and feel of the Lisa Frank Incorporated brand.
