Firm concludes successful infringement defense of Supreme

September 29, 2017 – Firm partners David Given and Nick Carlin recently concluded the successful defense of popular skate-culture brand Supreme.  In a hotly-contested case brought in the federal district court in Los Angeles, Supreme was accused of using certain artwork on its merchandise without permission and in violation of copyright law.  In resolving the case in its client’s favor before trial, the firm obtained plaintiff artist’s acknowledgment on the record of Supreme’s “factual and legal innocence” with respect to “any of the matters giving rise to this lawsuit.”  Further, by the parties’ settlement, Supreme made no payment to plaintiff on his claim.
