    Comments <p><strong><a href=""></a></strong> Tiffany & Co. has won a $2.1 million default judgment and permanent injunction against 78 defendants operating websites that allegedly sell counterfeit Tiffany jewelry. </p><p><strong><a href=""></a></strong> The judgment, issued on Oct. 28 by federal court for the southern district of Florida, requires the sites—with names like and—to transfer their domains to Tiffany. </p><p><strong><a href=""></a></strong> At press time, however, two of the sites— and , which both mimic the standard Tiffany site and logos—still seemed operational.</p><p><strong><a href=""></a></strong> “Trademark counterfeiting severely damages brand owners and consumers alike,’ said chairman and CEO Michael Kowalski in a statement similar to one the retailer issued in 2007 . “The way to stop it is to take aggressive action against the counterfeiters and make them pay, civilly. That's what happened in this case which should send a message to anyone trying to sell counterfeit Tiffany merchandise.”</p><p><strong><a href=""></a></strong> The company’s lawyers previously have complained about the continuing costs of having to constantly police its mark online.</p><p><strong><a href=""></a></strong> “The recent explosion of counterfeiting over the Internet has created an environment which requires Tiffany to file a large number of lawsuits, often it later turns out, against the same individuals and groups,” said legal papers filed in January . “The financial burden on Tiffany and companies similarly situated is staggering, as is the resulting burden on the Federal court system.”</p> To receive the latest jewelry news and blogs every day, subscribe to JCK’s e-newsletter here.
