Louis Vuitton v Akanoc, et al.: First Amended Complaint - 11 - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 FIRST CLAIM FOR RELIEF (For Contributory Trademark Infringement) 34. Plaintiff repeats and re-alleges all of the allegations contained in paragraphs 1 through 33, inclusive, as though fully set forth herein. 35. The Counterfeiting Websites are engaging in illegal conduct including but not necessarily limited to the promotion, advertisement, offer for sale, sale and distribution of counterfeit goods in violation of the Lanham Act, as amended. 36. Defendants have actual knowledge of the Counterfeiting Websites' illegal activities from, among other things, written notification by counsel and agents for Plaintiff. 37.

Plaintiff has sustained damages as a result of the Defendants' wrongful contributory conduct in an amount to be ascertained at trial but in no event less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) per trademark per counterfeit. SECOND CLAIM FOR RELIEF (For Vicarious Trademark Counterfeiting) 42. Plaintiff repeats and re-alleges all of the allegations contained in paragraphs 1 through 41, inclusive, as though fully set forth herein. 43. The illegal sales of products that infringe on the Plaintiff's Trademarks have generated enormous sums of monies for the Counterfeiting Websites. 44. Despite the Defendants' duty and right to control the Counterfeiting Websites, they have taken no steps to stop or otherwise prevent the ongoing counterfeiting at the websites operated by the Counterfeiting Websites or to disconnect links directing its users to such websites. 45.

The ISP Defendants do so pursuant to terms of use which permit them to discontinue links through websites offering product infringing the rights of third parties. 49. Defendants have actual knowledge of the illegal acts of the Counterfeiting Websites from, among other things, written notification from Louis Vuitton. Defendants have therefore deliberately disregarded and otherwise consciously avoided learning about the full extent of illegal counterfeiting and infringing activities that are continuing at the websites operated by the Counterfeiting Websites. 50. Defendants have knowingly and willfully permitted and continue to permit the Counterfeiting Websites to sell and offer for sale unauthorized copies of products bearing the Louis Vuitton Intellectual Properties at the Counterfeiting Websites. 51. Defendants have therefore materially encouraged, enabled, and contributed to the infringing conduct at the websites operated by the Counterfeiting Websites. 52. Plaintiff has sustained, and will continue to sustain, substantial injuries, loss, and damage to its exclusive rights in the Louis Vuitton Copyrights, and Plaintiff has sustained and will continue to sustain damages from the loss of value of the exclusive rights thereunder as a result of the Defendants' wrongful conduct in an amount to be determined at trial but in no event less than One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($150,000) per copyright infringed.
