We are pleased to report that a U.S. District Judge in California has issued Orders in December 2015 staying (putting on hold) a copyright infringement lawsuit that had been filed against our clients. The Judge's Orders stopped all discovery, and the Judge referred the matter to the U.S. Copyright Office to review whether the copyright asserted against our clients in the suit should be invalidated based on plaintiff's failure to disclose pre-existing material when they filed for their copyright registration. Our firm used a statute under the Copyright law to our clients' advantage which is rarely used, and for which there is little case law. Various arguments we filed resulted in these favorable recent Orders. The plaintiff in the case is known to file dozens of copyright lawsuits against fabric and other fashion designers, and our firm challenged this plaintiff through this procedure, rather than just paying a settlement, as was the case with dozens of other defendants.

We are pleased to advise that our firm successfully obtained a jury verdict invalidating the asserted claims in U.S. Patent No. 6,983,542 and further finding no infringement in the case of Waddington North America vs. Sabert Corp. in the U.S. District Court for New Jersey. Our firm represented Sabert Corp. who had been charged with patent infringement. Our client avoided a potential judgment for up to triple damages and attorney's fees. The case had been pending since September 22, 2009, and related to metal coatings on plastic cutlery.
