U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan enforces settlement

PEORIA, Ill. - eTradeWire -- Phillips & Bathke, P.C., an intellectual property law firm, announces a recent favorable ruling for its client in a case before the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. When the defendant in that case failed to comply with the terms of the settlement agreement, the Firm successfully obtained an order enforcing the settlement agreement.

The suit stemmed from false Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and trademark notices that the defendant had filed against the Firm's client on the popular e-commerce platform Etsy, resulting in the removal of the Firm's client's products.

After rigorous litigation and extensive negotiations, a settlement agreement was reached. On February 22, 2024, after defendant did not perform, the Eastern District of Michigan upheld the enforcement of this agreement, signifying a significant step forward in the protection of intellectual property rights.
