Last month, Novelty Textile, a fabric designer filed a lawsuit against White Mark Universal Inc., Walmart and Does 1-10, citing alleged copyright infringement and violation of the Copyright Act.
The plaintiff claimed ownership of an exclusive two-dimensional floral artwork on textile printing which was infringed upon by the defendants.
The plaintiff accused the defendants of manufacturing and supplying textiles having designs identical, or substantially similar, to plaintiff’s copyrighted works without authorization which has caused confusion, unfair competition and damages to the plaintiff.
The plaintiff is seeking a trial by jury and a permanent injunction plus payments of all profits made along side damages as the court deem fit.
