Hanesbrands Withdraws Lawsuit against Gildan Activewear Inc

Hanesbrands Inc. and a subsidiary have agreed to voluntarily withdraw a trademark lawsuit against Gildan Activewear Inc., though leaving open the door to resubmitting. The lawsuit was filed Dec. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of N.C. by Hanesbrands and HBI Branded Apparel Enterprises LLC. The Hanesbrands companies requested a jury trial. Hanesbrands accused Gildan and Gildana USA Inc. of trademark infringement and unfair competition related to Gildan's use of the Tempfx brand for moisture-control apparel products. Hanesbrands had said Gildan was marketing products identical to those sold by (Hanesbrands) under their X-Temp trademark. Hanesbrands said it began marketing X-Temp products in July 2012 and received a trademark in August 2013. The complaint said Gildan began marketing products under the Tempfx brand in the United States in early 2014, benefiting from consumer awareness already generated by X-Temp in shared retail distribution channels. Gildan has attempted to obtain a trademark for Tempfx since October 2013. Hanesbrands filed an initial objection in September. Hanesbrands wanted Gildan enjoined from using the Tempfx trademark, as well as damages and an accounting of Gildan profits from use of the trademark.
