True Religion Awarded $863.9 Million in Cybersquatting Case Against 106 Defendants

The Southern District of New York has awarded True Religion a default judgment against 106 defendants operating 282 websites, mostly from China.  The defendants were found guilty of four counts of trademark counterfeiting as well as one count of copyright infringement.  Although this victory will allow True Religion to send a message to potential counterfeiters, the company has admitted that it may have difficulty collecting damages, given that the defendants are overseas and have concealed themselves with multiple false identities and operations addresses.
