If you've attended Toronto's Fashion Week, it's likely
that you've come away from the tent with a strong desire to wear a carpet to
your next cocktail party. If you haven't been to Toronto Fashion Week, let me
explain. Korhani is a Canadian carpet and rug manufacturer. For the last few
years, Korhani has used ingeniously used Toronto's Fashion Week as an
exceptional public relations platform. It has repurposed its rugs and carpets
to become fashion designs. Heralded with its own runway show
season-after-season, Korhani produces one of the most talked about shows. It
really is a delightfully fresh show that never fails to impress.
therefore, was intrigued to discover that Korhani Canada Inc. has issued a
claim against Home Décor Inc. for copyright infringement. Korhani claims that
Home Décor has copied at least 3 original designs, which violates Korhani's
copyrights to the design. In addition, Korhani claims that the Home Décor's
importation of the infringing designs into Canada violates Korhani's rights.
Korhani is seeking an injunction, seizure of the
allegedly infringing works, statutory damages and punitive damages.
