The complaint states that JacobsParts sells computer and office supplies and that a vast majority of its sales are through amazon.com. United Integral is alleged to also sell computer and office supplies through amazon.com. The complaint alleges that at an unknown time, United began describing itself on amazon as selling products bearing the JPQuality and JacobsParts marks. The complaint alleges United claims to offer these trademarked goods at lower prices than JacobsParts does. The complaint states that United's unfair practices result in its products being listed first when customers are searching for the specific parts on amazon. It further alleges that United then sends customers generic and non-trademarked parts, which are lower quality, in an attempt to "pass off" its products. JacobsParts has included a list of the allegedly infringing products, which consists mainly of mobile phone cases, styluses, chargers and cables. The complaint seeks a declaration of infringement, an injunction, actual and treble damages, costs and attorney fees.
