Burberry Ltd. won more than $1.5 million from a New York-based importer and online seller Tuesday after a judge found the merchant had sold counterfeit apparel and accessories.
The luxury brand sued Designers Imports Inc. in 2007, two years after the companies entered into a previous settlement prohibiting Designers Imports from selling counterfeit goods. Burberry’s investigators later bought 20 items from Designers Imports’ Web site to ensure it was abiding by the agreement and determined 14 of the products were fake. Designers Imports argued at a September bench trial that any infringement had not been willful, contended that two of the items Burberry deemed fake were authentic and questioned the accuracy of all of the luxury house’s findings.
