Glendale, CA – Copyright lawsuit was filed by Glendale, CA copyright attorneys representing Burbank based Disney Enterprises, Inc. The copyright infringement lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Federal District Court, itemizes several motion pictures which have been produced by Disney and registered with the US Copyright Office. Disney alleges that the defendant does business on eBay and has “copied, reproduced, distributed, advertised and/or sold and continue to copy, reproduce, distribute, advertise and/or sell unauthorized copies of motion pictures owned by Disney,” which copies are counterfeit.
Disney states that its damages cannot yet be determined and it may elect between the profits generated by the defendants or statutory damages under 17 U.S.C. § 504. Because Disney claims not to have an adequate remedy at law, it “seeks preliminary and permanent injunctive relief pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 502 and seizure of the Unauthorized Media Product, including the means of production as provided by 17 U.S.C. § 503.” Disney also requests that its attorneys’ fees and other costs in connection with the prosecution of its claims be paid by defendant pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 505.
