New Albany, IndianaUltra Athlete LLC (“Ultra Athlete”) originally filed suit against Defendants, Jalmar Araujo and JB Sports, LLC d/b/a Flexibrace, in the Southern District of Indiana. Ultra Athlete claimed the Defendants willfully infringed its rights in both United States Patent Nos. 6,749,578 for “Ankle Brace With Cuff and Strap” and D550,370 for “Ankle Brace Shell”. Further, Ultra Athlete claimed Defendants violated the Lanham Act by infringing its trade dress and by acting in a manner that constituted unfair competition. Finally, Ultra Athlete claimed Defendants violated the unfair competition laws of Indiana.

After the Court dismissed the patent infringement and Lanham Act unfair competition claims, the only claims remaining in the suit were trade tress infringement and unfair competition under Indiana laws. Ultra Athlete filed the dismissed claims in the proper venue – the District of Massachusetts – and Defendants moved to transfer the remaining claims to the same venue.

Judge Richard L. Young of the Southern District of Indiana granted the Motion to Transfer the case to the District of Massachusetts stating, “[t]he court finds the convenience of the parties, the convenience of the witnesses, and the interests of justice warrant” the transfer. Judge Young further noted, “most importantly, transferring this case to Massachusetts will avoid duplicative litigation and the potential for conflicting rulings.” Overhauser Law Offices represented the prevailing Defendants in both the Motion to Dismiss and the Motion to Transfer.

New Albany, IndianaBroadcast Music, Inc., one of six Plaintiffs in this copyright infringement case, claims to license the public performance rights for 14 million copyrighted musical compositions (the “BMI Repertoire”). The other five Plaintiffs claim to each own at least one copyright in the musical compositions at issue which include “Free Bird,” “Me And Bobby McGee,” and “Midnight Rider.”

Defendant Scott County Restaurants, Inc. (“Scott”) allegedly owns and operates Bonanza Steak & BBQ (“Bonanza”) in Seymour, Indiana. According to the Complaint, Defendant Michael P. Everhart (“Everhart”) is an officer of Scott and is responsible for the activities and operations of Bonanza. Apparently, the musical compositions at issue in this case were each played at Bonanza on at least one occasion. Plaintiffs claim to have reached out to Defendants over 40 times regarding the necessity for Defendants to purchase a license for public performance before filing this suit seeking damages for willful copyright infringement.

The case was assigned to District Judge Tanya W. Pratt and Magistrate Judge Debra McVicker Lynch in the Southern District and assigned Cause No. 4:20-cv-000006-TWP-DML.

Fort Wayne, Indiana – Plaintiff, CravinVapes, LLC, claims Defendants, Michael McClellan and Indiana Vapes, LLC infringed its U.S. Trademark Registration No. 4,714,661 (the “‘661 Mark”). Apparently, CravinVapes had previously licensed the ‘661 Mark to non-party, Lee Eddy (“Eddy”) in connection with his operation of an E-liquid business shop. It was noted when Eddy sold his store to Defendants, Eddy’s license agreement with CravinVapes was not transferable as CravinBlog2-300x95part of the sale. However, CravinVapes claims Defendants opened an E-liquid store and have continued the use of the ‘661 Mark on the sign for the storefront.  Plaintiff also claims Indiana Vapes LLC held themselves out to the public as  a CravinVapes location on Facebook. While CravinVapes claims it gave McClellan an opportunity to sign a license agreement with it on August 17, 2018, it appears he refused to do so.

Just over a year after being offered the license agreement, Defendants were allegedly sent a cease and desist letter on November 13, 2019. According to the Complaint, after further discussions between the parties, Defendants removed the exterior sign with the ‘661 Mark from their storefront in December 2019, but have continued to use the ‘661 Mark on Facebook. CravinVapes is seeking an injunction and damages related to trademark infringement, false designation of origin, and unfair competition.

The case was assigned to Judge Holly A. Brady and Magistrate Judge Susan L. Collins in the Northern District of Indiana and assigned Case 1:19-cv-00546-HAB-SLC.
