Venice, California – The Court has ruled on a significant motion filed by Defendant Urban Outfitters in a case related to a recent finding by a Federal Court jury that Urban Outfitters had committed willful copyright infringement by knowingly selling garments bearing a knock-off of a Unicolors design. Urban moved the Court to dismiss this related action, and sought over $10,000.00 in sanctions against Doniger / Burroughs. In response, Doniger / Burroughs argued that the motion was devoid of merit and was an attempt to evade liability for an egregious act of copyright infringement. The Court agreed with Doniger / Burroughs, and denied Urban Outfitters’ motion in its entirety.
