Los Angeles, CA – Novelty Textiles, Inc., represented by Scott Alan Burroughs and Trevor W. Barrett of Doniger / Burroughs, has prevailed at the summary judgment stage in a hotly-contested legal battle regarding the use of certain fashion designs. The Court granted Novelty Textiles’ motion for summary adjudication, and ruled that the Defendants Wet Seal and former Novelty Textiles customer, Hot Shot HK, were liable for copyright infringement in connection with three of Novelty Textiles’ proprietary fashion designs. The Court also found that Wet Seal and Hot Shot HK were willful in their respective acts of infringement because each was aware of Novelty Textile’s copyrights in the fashion designs yet chose nevertheless to exploit the designs without Novelty Textile’s permission. The case will now proceed to trial on the issue of damages.
