Sale Of Counterfeit UGG Products Leads To Domain Name Transfer And Asset Freeze

By Sarah Robertson, Susan Progoff, Fara Sunderji and Jena Tiernan of Dorsey & Whitney LLP

In an unpublished decision in Deckers Outdoor Corporation v. Does 1-100, Docket No. 12 C 10006 (N.D. Ill. January 16, 2013), the court converted a temporary restraining order into a preliminary injunction against a collection of individuals and business entities residing in China and other foreign countries who operate websites selling counterfeit UGG merchandise. The defendants' websites used domain names that incorporated the UGG trademark and depicted their products using Deckers' copyrighted images. After being served with the temporary restraining order, the defendants did not appear in the lawsuit and did not contest the preliminary injunction motion. The court enjoined the defendants from further violating Deckers' trademark and copyrights, ordered the transfer to Deckers of the defendants' domain names and froze defendants' PayPal and other accounts associated with the defendants' websites.
