9th Circuit Unanimously Denies Petition for Rehearing in Copyright / Fashion Battle

Culver City, California – Alleged copyright infringers Ms. Bubbles, Inc. and Aeropostale, Inc. did not respond favorably to an April decision of the 9th Circuit that obliterated a district court victory obtained by the companies. The two parties filed a lengthy and strident Petitition for Rehearing, requesting that the Court revisit its clear, well-written decision. Doniger / Burroughs opposed the Petition, arguing that the decision was thorough and true. The Court today unanimously and roundly rejected the Petition, and instructed the alleged infringers to file no further Petitions.
