Apple, design firm are sued
Artist Romero Britto is suing Apple Inc. and a design firm in federal court, accusing them of misusing his color-splashed images and distinctive style in marketing campaigns.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages from Apple and the design duo Craig Redman of New York and Karl Maier of London, whose company is called Craig & Karl.
Britto’s lawsuit, filed in Miami federal court on behalf of his Miami Beach company Britto Central Inc., makes a number of claims, including copyright infringement and unfair competition. It also asks a U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams to halt the alleged misuse of Britto’s images.
Apple executives declined to comment.
