Kenzo alleges that the sellers – which include '1one2two3three', 'Abby Amy' and 'amanda carpenter', amongst others – have sold knockoff copies of its products and it is seeking statutory damages of $2m per counterfeit trademark plus profits, legal fees etc, says the Florida Record.

The case (0:16-cv-63030-DPG) is being heard in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
