Under Armour Inc. has just won its trademark infringement case against Chinese clothing company Uncle Martian. According to a press release put out by the law firm Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP, the People’s Higher Court of Fujian Province has ordered Uncle Marian to destroy all infringing products, pay approximately $300,000 USD in damages and publish a statement to eliminate the adverse effect of Uncle Martian’s infringement.
The lawsuit stems back to Under Amour originally suing Uncle Martian back in June of last year when they were accused of stealing the design for Under Armour’s Curry 2. Uncle Martian was also accused of stealing Under Armour’s logo, despite the Chinese company saying they were focused on developing their own brand.
