ACRA ENTERPRISES, INC., ET AL. v. NATIONAL MARKER COMPANY, INC.
WESTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN (SOUTHERN DIVISION)
Copyright infringement is so rampant on the Internet that there are many tools to use to address the infringement without filing an expensive copyright infringement lawsuit. When all else fails, however, sometimes you are left with no option but to proceed with a lawsuit and attempt to recover monetary damages as well as obtain injunctive relief, preventing the Defendant from continuting with its infringing ways.
Plaintiff ACRA is a Michigan corporation and owns copyrights in its manual and guide in the field of crane and rigging safety. The Defendant is accused to have copied the manual and guide, removed the copyright notice of the Plaintiff, inserted a logo of its own, and is allegedly providing the material to competitors online.
ACRA alleges copyright infringement, contributory infringement, false designation of origin and reverse palming off, and violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. ACRA respectfully requests that the Court enter judgment in favor of the Plaintiff for a preliminary and permanent injunction from further infringement, an award of all exemplary, punitive, special, incidental, and consequential damages, an award of costs and expenses including reasonable attorney fees, and any further relief as the Court deems just.
