MONTREAL — Three Canadian companies have been ordered to pay about $2.5 million combined to Louis Vuitton and Burberry for selling knockoffs of their handbags in what was described as an “egregious” case of trademark infringement by a Federal Court judge.
Singga Enterprises Inc. and Carnation Fashion Co. of Vancouver, and Altec Productions of Toronto were accused of importing, manufacturing and selling illegally handbags bearing Louis Vuitton and Burberry logos. Louis Vuitton and Burberry filed their lawsuit after using private investigators for two years to visit warehouses and purchase fake handbags in person and online.
