PHILADELPHIA — A Pennsylvania design business is suing Nxt Generation LLC and Global Manufacturing Associates Inc., both based in Ohio, citing alleged copyright infringement for using a camouflage pattern without permission.
Moon Shine L.O. filed a complaint on April 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against the defendants alleging that they reproduced plaintiff's Muddy Girl and Wildfire camouflage designs on their line of children's hunting toys. The plaintiff has created camo designs for use on a wide range of products.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it sustained damages to its company from having its camouflage designs copied. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly sell products that feature a design that was derived from the plaintiff's proprietary patterns.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctions against the defendant and judgment against the defendant for actual damages, statutory damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. They are represented by Carol Steinour Young and Brian P. Gregg of McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC in Harrisburg.
