I love it when fakesters pay!

Louis Vuitton Malletier (the people who make LV stuff) just won $3,000,000 in statutory damages and over $500,000 in attorney’s fees and expenses.

The company sued LY (not LV) USA, Inc., Marco Leather Goods Ltd., Coco USA Ltd. and the principals Chong Lam and Joyce Chan (the “Defendants”) for trademark counterfeiting.

The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York spared the defendants no mercy.

The lawkeepers said their failure to produce documents on sales and profits and their “many attempts to register marks closely derived from those of luxury brands…”…invites “an inference of a massive counterfeiting enterprise.”

Yaaaay for LV!
