Georgia-Pacific Files Lawsuit Against Aldi

Georgia-Pacific claims its Angel Soft toilet tissue is getting ripped off by Aldi. In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Atlanta on April 16, Georgia-Pacific said the packaging of its Angel Soft toilet paper has been blatantly imitated by Aldi for Aldi's SoftTouch toilet paper, particularly the color of the label, images of clouds, a picture of a baby and the use of the word 'soft'. In its lawsuit, Georgia-Pacific reveals that over the past five years, its revenues from the sale of Angel Soft toilet tissue total more than $7 billion. The company said it has invested more than $175 million in advertising and promoting Angel Soft in just the past five years, including Disney sweepstakes, the Angels in Action volunteer program, and the Bath Moments promotion on America's Funniest Home Videos. Georgia-Pacific said Aldi is compounding the problem because Aldi's SoftTouch packaging carries the words 'Now with 15% more sheets than Angel Soft and Compare to Angel Soft Bath Tissue.
