Ap­ple, de­sign firm are sued

Los Angeles Times - - BUSINESS -

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.
