NEW YORK — Diesel U.S.A. won a permanent injunction and final judgment on consent against Chic Lady Ltd. and its owner, Michael Kamali, for copyright infringement.

According to court documents, Diesel filed a copyright infringement lawsuit in October 2005 against wholesale apparel and accessories retailer Chic Lady for allegedly using its stylized “D” trademark and the “Diesel-Only-The-Brave-Diesel” trademark on Chic Lady jeans.

Chic Lady and Kamali could not be reached for comment.

The original Diesel complaint against Chic Lady alleged trademark infringement, false designation of origin, false advertising, trademark dilution, trademark counterfeiting, unfair competition, injury to business reputation and false and deceptive business practices.

Under the terms of the judgment, Chic Lady is restrained from reproducing the jeans or any other merchandise with the Diesel trademarks.
