Hells Angels Sues Dillard's for Trademark Infringement

Infamous motorcycle club Hells Angels has filed a lawsuit against clothing company 8732 and department store Dillard's over what they believe to be trademark infringement.

According to the complaint, the clothing company 8732, which is carried by Dillard's, is using the angels’ well-known “death head patch” emblem on t-shirts, vests and hats. While the Dillards retail store does not carry the items, they are sold online.

The attorney for the Hells Angels maintains the fact that the emblem is an important symbol for the club and carries a significant amount of commercial value.

According to The Bloomberg Report, the club, which has filed over fifteen trademark suits since 2000, is seeking destruction of the infringing apparel, monetary damages (including 8732’s profits from any item bearing the trademarked image) as well as attorneys’ fees and litigation costs.

    Make sure the quote includes the following: origin (shipper's
    door or port), destination (consignee's door, port or unloading warehouse).
    There are many different international car shipping companies for example National Transport LLC that will probably
    be of interest to you. They protect your car while shipping and save you money at
    the same time.

    If you're really concerned about your automobile then enclosed vehicle transport may
    be the suitable option. Here again, the very role of international car shipping company can't be undermined anyways.
    Make sure that the business is up to date on their own license and insurance.

    Does your business tend towards one style
    over others, catalog printing as an example, or do you really need a printer that's
    equally capable in all the print forums, from large format and oversized printing, to newsletter and direct mailing.

    Unconventional Management Sectors- The success of managers with a MBA degree in corporate
    fields has ended in an increase in the hiring of individuals holding an MBA degree in specialized areas.
    These companies maintain backups of these projects and that's why believe that it easier to maintain them,
    in the event they face any troubles.
