U.S. District Court Judge Upholds Seven of Eight Claims in a Lawsuit Filed Against Hartz Mountain Corporation

A U.S. District Court judge has upheld seven of eight claims in a lawsuit filed by a Seattle artist against Hartz Mountain Corporation. The lawsuit claims Hartz illegally sold an Angry Birds pet toy line based on the video game by Rovio Entertainment Ltd, even though Hartz had an agreement with Seattle artist, Juli Adams, to sell her pet products called Angry Birds. The suit alleges that Hartz wrongfully used the Angry Birds trademark that Ms. Adams owned and deprived her of millions of dollars of royalties on sales of Angry Birds pet toys. The artist s lawsuit states that Hartz was licensed to sell Ms. Adams Angry Birds pet toys in return for a royalty, but it never purchased the intellectual property, including the Angry Birds trademark for pet toys created by Adams. When the Angry Birds video game became popular, Hartz quit selling Ms. Adams pet toy line and entered into a separate agreement with Rovio, makers of the Angry Birds video game franchise. The order issued by Judge Robert S. Lasnik denied Hartz's motion to dismiss the case, upholding claims that Hartz violated its contract with Adams, was unjustly enriched, and wrongfully used her trademark.
