Recently Disney and Sanrio have teamed up to file a lawsuit. They are claiming copyright and trademark infringement lawsuit against a business owner, George Wilson, who they say is selling fake edible cake frosting sheets that have the likeness of Disney characters. In the list of demands, they are asking authorities to take”any molds, screens, patterns, plates, negatives, machinery or equipment used for making or manufacturing” the counterfeit cakes.
The suit was filed on Wednesday in California. It is being handled by J. Andrew Coombs, who has worked with Disney in the past. He has dealt with many of these cases. He has represented studios over unlicensed goods in the past. His most recent case was over Darth Vader cufflinks. This case was recently settled with a permanent injunction. Perhaps, you might remember his most famous case to date, it involves replicas on the Batmobile. That case is sill ongoing.
