 A New York district court has granted jeweler David Yurman protection against websites selling counterfeit merchandise under its brand.

Judge Paul Oetken issued a permanent injunction against 31 unnamed websites, preventing them from distributing, advertising or selling any fake David Yurman products, the jeweler said last week. He also awarded the jeweler nearly $1.6 million in statutory damages, and ordered the defendants to transfer the domain names of all infringing websites to David Yurman.

The defendants operated a network of websites that were designed to look like authorized David Yurman sites, using the retailer’s trademarks and copyrighted campaign images, according to a statement by the company. They then sold imitation products using the jeweler’s name.

“We are pleased with the judgment, and will continue to take aggressive action to protect our consumers, our designs and our trademarks,” said Carol Pennelli, president of David Yurman. “We will not tolerate infringers and counterfeiters in the marketplace, regardless of where they operate.”
