CB Merchandising Is Tacking Fraudsters Hawking Chris Brown Knockoffs At Concerts
Chris Brown is terrified his good reputation is at stake with his fans — all due to counterfeiters tricking them into buying illegal products.
Now, Brown’s merchandizing company has filed a lawsuit demanding a judge put an end to the people hawking the items.
CB Merchandising filed a federal lawsuit demanding the court grant them an injunction against counterfeiters who are trying to make some cash off Brown’s fans.
The company explains that they have an agreement with Brown to license his trademark for use in merchandise sold at his concerts, including clothing, posters, buttons, hats etc.
The suit states Brown has used his trademark for more than a decade in his recording career and to sell merch to his fans. The company said in court papers that Brown has a strong and loyal fan base who attend his shows and buys the items he sells – along with having sold more than 10 million records and toured major arenas around the country.
CB Merchandising explained that Brown is scheduled to perform at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park, Ill. on Aug. 14th.
However, they said that counterfeiters would be outside the arena, peddling cheap knockoffs that will trick Brown’s fans into thinking he endorsesd the inferior products and will tarnish his rep.
The company has demanded an injunction to seize all illegal Chris Brown merch sold outside the arena, and money for the profits Brown is going to lose with the illegal merchandise being sold.
