OFF-WHITE is suing over 161 sellers on the E-commerce platform Wish.com for reportedly selling fakes of the brand. According to the lawsuit, the label is seeking $2 million in damages for each infringement — which would add up to a multimillion-dollar payout.
The product in question features the OFF-WHITE name alongside its signature stripe and crossed arrow logo. While $2 million for each copyright infringement might seem steep, WWD states that the company is actually asking for the standard amount, as judges usually reduce the claim.
The lawsuit requests that all sellers be removed from the e-commerce platform during the litigation proceedings. It also claims that the sellers combined have sold more than $41 million worth of product while on Wish.com, $1.18 million of which is estimated to come from fake OFF-WHITE alone.
