Hermes International SCA (www.Hermes.com), maker of Birkin handbags and silk scarves, recently won a judgment that includes $100 million in damages against 34 websites that sold fake copies of its luxury goods on websites such as HermesOutletStore.com and HermesBags-Outlet.net.
U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in New York ruled that the websites, which didn't defend themselves in court, sold items that infringed upon at least nine (9) Hermes products including Birkin and Kelly handbags, wallets, watches, belts and jewelry. Additionally, Cote said the websites were liable for federal trademark counterfeiting and infringement.
