Podcast: Mark Sommers Discusses the Southern District of New York's Decision to Grant Broad Injunctive Relief to Tory Burch and Future Implications to Fashion Counterfeiters

Sommers, Mark

The fashion industry continues to face a surge in sophisticated criminal counterfeiting operations–many are aggressive in their online efforts to market and sell luxury brand knockoffs. A recent court decision in the Southern District of New York granted broad injunctive relief to luxury brand retailer Tory Burch, who had filed suit after discovering more than 200 different websites selling counterfeit versions of its signature products. In this podcast, Finnegan partner Mark Sommers discusses the recent court decision, and the precedent it upholds in imposing measures against the next-generation methods and techniques counterfeiters are using to dodge liability.
