Canon U.S.A. Inc. successfully sued two counterfeiters in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania over the sale of camera batteries on eBay that the defendants falsely billed as made by Canon. The plaintiffs, represented by Burns & Levinson and Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg, claimed that the defendants’ sale of counterfeit products caused unfair competition, risked damage to the brand’s reputation, and could pose a threat to consumer safety. According to a press release, the defendants were ordered to pay Canon and were prohibited from further infringing on the company’s trademark.
