NEW YORK — Adidas AG and its U.S. arm, Adidas America, Portland, Ore., have filed a $1.5 million trademark infringement suit against Krystal K. International Inc., City of Industry, Calif., a women’s activewear manufacturer.
In the suit, filed in Federal Court here, Adidas alleges that Krystal K., which does business as Jumping Joy, has been selling women’s activewear with Adidas’s three-stripe trademark without the German-based manufacturer’s permission.
Krystal Ku, president of Krystal K., said she was unaware of the suit.
In addition to a preliminary and permanent injunction forbidding Krystal from infringing on any of its trademarks, Adidas is asking for treble damages of “not less than $500,000” in profits derived from the sale of violating merchandise.
Adidas is represented by Robert Erb, of Dvorak & Traub here.
