New York, New York – Doniger / Burroughs client L.A. Printex Industries, Inc. discovered that Canadian company Le Chateau, Inc. was selling garments and bags bearing a knock-off one of its proprietary textile prints, and brought a copyright infringement suit in Federal Court. Le Chateau denied any wrongdoing, and mounted a very aggressive legal defense. This defense spanned almost two years, involved litigation in California and New York, and included the filing by Le Chateau of multiple summary judgment motions and even a Fed.R.Civ.P. Section 11 Motion, all of which were roundly rejected by the Court. Indeed, Le Chateau failed to prevail on a single motion in this case.
L.A. Printex, through its attorneys at Doniger / Burroughs, filed a summary judgment motion in the Southern District of New York, requesting that the Court adjudge that Le Chateau had violated the Copyright Act. The motion was vigorously opposed by Le Chateau, Inc., which had its own summary judgment motion filed with the Court. On March 23, 2012, the Honorable Laura Taylor Swain rejected Le Chateau, Inc.’s motion in its entirety, and granted in full L.A. Printex’s motion, finding that L.A. Printex had established that Le Chateau violated the Copyright Act and was thus liable for copyright infringement.
