Urban Outfitters Found Liable for Willful Trademark Infringement

Urban Outfitters leases copyrighted fabrics from Unicolors. Unicolors is a fabric company that creates their own designs. Unicolors copyrights their designs to “protect its investment and maintain a competitive advantage in its artwork.” Urban Outfitters designers and artists make up to 5000 designs a year. When Urban Outfitters was sued by Unicolors, the District Court in the Central District of California decided on a motion for summary judgment. Urban Outfitters infringed on Unicolors’ copyright. Urban Outfitters willfully ignored the opportunity to lease the print.
