Warner Bros sued for pirating Louis Vuitton tradem

NewYorkCountryLawyer (912032) writes | more than 2 years ago

Piracy 2

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes "You have to love a case where Warner Brothers, copyright maximalist extraordinaire, gets sued for "piracy", in this case for using a knock-off Luis Vuitton bag in a recent movie. This lawsuit has been described as "awkward" for Warner; I have to agree with that characterization. Louis Vuitton's 22-page complaint (PDF) alleges that Warner Bros. had knowledge that the bag was a knock-off, and went ahead, and used it, anyway. Apparently Warner Bros. takes IP rights seriously only when its Warner's IP rights that are involved."

They should be charged per movie viewer (1)

The MPAA claims thousands per pirated upload or download. This same illogic should be applied to their criminal act.
