Nov 2011 Angry Birds gets Thrown

ANGRY BRIDS US TRADEMARKS & COPYRIGHTS
The United States licensee for the wildly popular Angry
Birds products, created by Rovio Mobile Ltd, sued VLF’s client, a stuffed toy
manufacturer based in Houston, Texas that makes and sells mascots for various
corporations and colleges throughout the Southwestern United States. Rovio
alleged that some of our client’s products violated the Angry Birds US
trademarks and copyrights, and sought damages well into the millions of
dollars.
After aggressively litigating the case, VLF proved to a
United States Federal District Court judge that Angry Bird had obtained its US
trademarks and copyrights at a later time than when the alleged infringement
occurred. As such, most of Angry Bird’s damages claims were drastically
reduced, and VLF obtained a very favorable settlement of the case.
VLF continues to represent its clients in the most
contentious trademark and copyright matters filed in the United States Federal
District Courts in Texas.
