ORDER GRANTING MOTION FOR
KEVA LINK LLC,
Re: Dkt. No. 22
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 22-cv-03924-WHO
Plaintiff Dave Tacon moves for entry of default judgment in this action arising from the
alleged infringement of his copyright-protected photograph by defendant Keva Link LLC (“Keva
Link”). His motion is GRANTED. As explained in the January 11, 2023, Minute Order, which I
incorporate by reference here, the majority of the factors articulated in Eitel v. McCool, 782 F.2d
1470, 1471-72 (9th Cir. 1986) support default judgment. See Dkt. No. 27. The only lingering
issue was the amount of damages. Id. Tacon then filed a supplemental notice stating that he
would accept an award of $7,830 in statutory damages, which the evidence presented supports.
Dkt. No. 28.
Accordingly, default judgment is entered against Keva Link in the amount of $7,830 in
statutory damages, plus $5,587.50 in attorney fees and $641 in costs. Keva Link is also enjoined
from continuing to store and display the photograph at issue on its website in order to prevent
further infringement. See 17 U.S.C. § 502(a).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: January 18, 2023
