He also claimed that his business sustained loss from their actions and that ‘Cotton On has made a profit by its wrongful acts and conduct.’
Cotton On responded to the allegations by denying it had infringed the logo and said it would resist any claim for damages. However, a spokeswoman later confirmed to the Sydney Morning Herald that the case has now been settled.
‘A settlement has been agreed and we are in the process of applying to the court to have the case removed,’ she told the Sydney Morning Herald.
This is the fourth time Cotton On has come under fire for alleged copyright infringement. In 2008 fashion brand Elwood successfully sued Cotton On, while two other brands took legal action in 2016 over claims the retail giant ripped off a trademarked phrase and a trademarked brand.
