Irwin IP recently settled a long-fought copyright battle on behalf of its client Massarelli’s Lawn Ornaments, Inc. (“MLO”), a leading manufacturer of concrete garden statuary. Two years ago, MLO discovered a replica of one of its statues in a HomeGoods store. MLO learned that a Chicago-based manufacturer, Continental, was the supplier of the statue and that Continental was making two other infringing statues. MLO filed suit for copyright infringement of the three works.
