SUGARFINA, INC.S COMPLAINT
Case 2:17-cv-04456 Document 1 Filed 06/15/17 Page 2 of 40 Page ID #:2

1 Plaintiff Sugarfina, Inc. (Sugarfina) complains and alleges as follows


2 against Defendants Sweet Petes LLC, ML Sweets, LLC, Peter Behringer,
3 and Allison Behringer (collectively, Sweet Petes or Defendants).
4 NATURE OF THE ACTION
5 1. Sugarfina revolutionized the candy industry when it was founded in
6 2012. Its founders, Joshua Resnick and Rosie ONeill, dreamt of creating a luxury
7 boutique retailer of curated candies and sweets. The inspiration behind Sugarfina
8 was sprouted during a screening of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate
9 Factory and the simple question: why should kids have all the fun?
10 2. Since 2012, Mr. Resnick and Ms. ONeill have traveled the world to
11 meet with artisan candy-makers and have taste-tested thousands of candies in their
T ROUTM AN S ANDERS LLP

12 search to find the best of the best. Today, this experience has culminated in

S U I T E 1400

13 Sugarfina redefining confectioneries and the associated experience, including


14 painstakingly creating high quality, distinctive packaging for its redefined
15 confectionaries. In the years since its founding, Sugarfina has established itself as
16 offering unique luxury products and a highly engaged customer base.
17 3. Sugarfinas efforts have now grown to a thriving business that
18 employs over 300 people and operates across various commercial channels,
19 including storefronts, e-commerce, wholesale, and corporate partnerships.
20 4. Sugarfinas retail channel focuses on building a footprint at high-end
21 luxury spaces. Currently, Sugarfina operates over twenty-four (24) retail boutiques,
22 with many additional storefronts planned throughout the globe. Sugarfina also
23 operates a series of shop-in-shops at fourteen (14) Nordstroms locations in the
24 United States and Canada. Its wholesale channel caters to premium reseller partners
25 such as Bergdorf Goodman and the Four Seasons Hotels. Its corporate channel
26 caters to institutional clients seeking to personalize packaging or coordinate events.
27 5. At present, Sugarfinas distribution channels have been well
28 established and the Sugarfina brand itself has come to be uniquely synonymous with

Case 2:17-cv-04456 Document 1 Filed 06/15/17 Page 3 of 40 Page ID #:3

1 luxury boutique candy. Although international expansion will continue, Sugarfina


2 has already become famous for its luxury items throughout the United States and
3 Canada.
4 6. From inception, Sugarfina has cultivated unmistakable design
5 features in its products and packaging. These design features have been used
6 consistently throughout the course of its business.
7 7. Sugarfina currently has approximately 140 different lines of candy,
8 i.e., products, each presented in a revolutionary and sophisticated presentation and
9 packaging that evidences Sugarfinas commitment to luxury and quality. Among
10 the signature innovations of Sugarfinas branding is its presentation of candy in
11 museum-quality Lucite that emphasizes the artisanal and rarified quality of a
T ROUTM AN S ANDERS LLP

12 gourmet small-portion tasting experience. Because of its innovative packaging and


I R V I N E , C A 92614-2545
5 PAR K PLA ZA
S U I T E 1400

13 distinctive design, coupled with impeccable attention to the quality of its candy,
14 Sugarfina products continue to thrive.
15 8. Sugarfinas creative achievements have resulted in broad intellectual
16 property protection for Sugarfinas innovations, including design patents, trademarks,
17 copyrights, and trade dress protection. Because of its success, Sugarfinas
18 innovations have been the subject of emulation by its competitors, who have
19 attempted to capitalize on Sugarfinas success by imitating Sugarfinas innovative,
20 elegant, and distinctive products and packaging.
21 9. One of these imitators is Sweet Petes, which has introduced a line of
22 products to compete with Sugarfina products. Instead of pursuing independent
23 product development, Sweet Petes has chosen not only to copy Sugarfinas
24 innovative, distinctive, and elegant product and packaging design, but has also
25 copied the types of candy, and protectable names, offered by Sugarfina, in violation
26 of Sugarfinas valuable intellectual property rights.

1 10. As alleged below, Sweet Petes has made and packaged its candy to
2 look like Sugarfinas products through widespread patents, copyright, trademark,
3 and trade dress infringement.
4 11. By this action, Sugarfina seeks to put a stop to Sweet Petes illegal
5 conduct and obtain compensation for the violations that have occurred thus far.
6 THE PARTIES
7 12. Plaintiff Sugarfina is a Delaware corporation having its principal
8 place of business at 3915 West 102nd Street, Inglewood, California 90303.
9 13. Defendant Sweet Petes LLC is a Florida limited liability company
10 with its principal office at 400 North Hogan Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32202.
11 14. On information and belief, Defendant ML Sweets LLC is a Delaware
T ROUTM AN S ANDERS LLP

I R V I N E , C A 92614-2545
5 PAR K PLA ZA
S U I T E 1400

13 Blue Bell, Pennsylvania 19422. The sole manager of ML Sweets LLC is Marcus
14 Lemonis, the star of the reality television show on CNBC The Profit, which
15 featured Sweet Petes in an episode that first aired on April 1, 2014. ML Sweets
16 LLC is one of the managers of Sweet Petes LLC.
17 15. On information and belief, Defendant Peter Behringer is an
18 individual that may be contacted at 400 North Hogan Street, Jacksonville, Florida
19 32202. Mr. Behringer is the founder of Sweet Petes LLC.
20 16. On information and belief, Defendant Allison Behringer is an
21 individual that may be contacted at 400 North Hogan Street, Jacksonville, Florida
22 32202. Ms. Behringer is the wife of Peter Behringer and one of the managers of
23 Sweet Petes LLC.
24 17. Plaintiff is informed and believes, and based thereon alleges, that at
25 all times herein mentioned, each of the Defendants was the agent, servant,
26 employee, and/or alter ego of each of the other Defendants, and in doing the things
27 hereinafter alleged, was acting within the course and scope of said agency and/or
28 employment, and with the permission and consent, express and/or implied, of the

Case 2:17-cv-04456 Document 1 Filed 06/15/17 Page 5 of 40 Page ID #:5

1 other Defendants herein. A unity of interest and ownership exists between and
2 among the Defendants such that there is no distinction between or among the
3 Defendants and if the acts alleged herein by one Defendant are treated as the acts of
4 that Defendant alone, an inequitable result will follow. On information and belief,
5 Defendants have utilized these entities to commit the wrongs alleged herein, to
6 shield themselves from personal liability for their conduct, and to hinder, delay,
7 and/or defraud others. In order to effect justice herein, the corporate fiction
8 maintained by Defendants must be pierced, all relief and damages should be
9 awarded against all Defendants jointly and severally, and all acts of the Defendants
10 should be treated as the acts of the other Defendants.
11 JURISDICTION
T ROUTM AN S ANDERS LLP

12 18. This Court has subject matter jurisdiction under 15 U.S.C. 1121
I R V I N E , C A 92614-2545
5 PAR K PLA ZA
S U I T E 1400

13 (action arising under the Lanham Act); 28 U.S.C. 1331 (federal question); 28
14 U.S.C. 1338(a) (any Act of Congress relating to patents, copyrights, or
15 trademarks); 28 U.S.C. 1338(b) (action asserting claim of unfair competition
16 joined with a substantial and related claim under the trademark laws); 28 U.S.C.
17 1332(a)(1) (diversity jurisdiction); and 28 U.S.C. 1367 (supplemental
18 jurisdiction).
19 19. This Court has personal jurisdiction over Sweet Petes because it has
20 committed and continues to commit acts of infringement in violation of 35 U.S.C.
21 271 and 15 U.S.C. 1114 and 1125, and places infringing products into the stream
22 of commerce, with the knowledge or understanding that such products are sold in the
23 State of California, including in this District. The acts by Sweet Petes cause injury
24 to Sugarfina within this District.
25 20. Upon information and belief, Sweet Petes also derives substantial
26 revenue from the sale of infringing products within this District, expects its actions to
27 have consequences within this District, and derives substantial revenue from
28 interstate and international commerce.

1 VENUE
2 21. Venue is proper within this District under 28 U.S.C. 1391(b) and
3 1367(a) because Sweet Petes transacts business within this district and offers for
4 sale in this district products that infringe the Sugarfina trade dress and trademarks. In
5 addition, venue is proper because Sugarfinas principal place of business is in this
6 district and Sugarfina suffered harm in this district. Moreover, a substantial part of
7 the events giving rise to the claim occurred in this district.
8 BACKGROUND
9 Sugarfinas Innovations
10 22. Sugarfina is a luxury candy boutique well recognized for its
11 distinctive products sold under the SUGARFINA brand using novel and original
T ROUTM AN S ANDERS LLP

12 designs in its packaging. Defendants are well aware that Sugarfina is the owner of

S U I T E 1400

13 numerous design patents, trademark registrations, and copyright registrations,


14 including the following (having received a cease and desist letter dated March 15,
15 2016).
16 U.S. Design Patent No. D755,641
17 U.S. Copyright Reg. No. VA0001963483
18 U.S. Copyright Reg. No. VA0001963482
19 23. As a direct result of its innovative and distinctive design and
20 packaging, Sugarfina products have been a great success, and their packaging,
21 colors, and presentation have immediately become uniquely associated with
22 Sugarfina as their source.

24 extensively advertised throughout the United States to capitalize on the existing
25 distribution channels, including social media and internet marketing, with the vast
26 majority of the advertisements featuring photographs of the distinctive design of the
27 Sugarfina products.

1 25. In addition, Sugarfinas products have received unsolicited comment


2 and attention in print and social media throughout the world. Each new Sugarfina
3 product is the subject of positive commentary and receives unsolicited praise from
4 independent social commentators. Frequently, these unsolicited commentaries are
5 accompanied by images of various Sugarfina products, including their unique
6 packaging.
7 26. The Sugarfina product design has come to represent and symbolize
8 the superb quality of Sugarfinas products and enjoys substantial goodwill among
9 consumers.
10 27. Sugarfina has received a number of awards for its signature designs
11 and innovations including, but not limited to, the Addy Gold award and the Chain

13 Sugarfinas IP Rights
14 Sugarfinas Trademarks
15 28. Sweet Petes products are not merely likely to confuse customers;
16 they are certain to confuse customers, and have actually confused customers, as
17 Sweet Petes sells products with exact or near-exact replicas of Sugarfinas marks,

19 CUBA LIBRE
20 PEACH BELLINI
21 FRUTTINI
22 CANDY BENTO BOX
23 CANDY CUBE
24 CANDY CONCIERGE
25 29. Sweet Petes use of Sugarfinas marks creates a high likelihood of
26 confusion, as Sweet Petes alters virtually nothing about the marks and intentionally
27 imports the entire appearance, sound, and meaning of Sugarfinas marks to profit
28 from the customers association of the marks with Sugarfina. Sweet Petes also

2 46. Despite being on clear notice of infringement of these and other

4 Sugarfinas distinctive, novel, and original designs that customers have come to
5 associate with the high quality and innovative candy products that Sugarfina offers.
6 47. Defendants have purposely taken steps to increase Sweet Petes

1 Sweet Petes Infringing Products


2 52. Defendants have imported into or sold in the United States the
3 following products, each of which infringes one or more of Sugarfinas Intellectual
4 Property Rights: Cuba Libre Cocktail, Ooh So Organic Peach Bellini, Candy
5 Bento Box or Bento box, Passion Fruitini, and Candy Cube, among others
6 (collectively, the Accused Products). Attached as Exhibit 8 is a true and correct
7 copy of the Accused Products.
8 53. Rather than innovate and develop its own packaging and unique style
9 for its candy products, Sweet Petes chose to copy Sugarfinas innovative style in
10 these infringing products.
11 54. Sweet Petes had many options in developing its candy. Indeed,
T ROUTM AN S ANDERS LLP

12 Peterbrooke Chocolatier (a predecessor entity to Sweet Petes) had sold candy for
I R V I N E , C A 92614-2545
5 PAR K PLA ZA
S U I T E 1400

13 as many as 30 years, but never embodied the same combination of design elements
14 of Sugarfinas presentation.
15 55. Sweet Petes was a failing business prior to its radical transformation
16 into a Sugarfina copycat. As Peter Behringer and Alison Behringer admitted in an
17 episode of the CNBC show, The Profit, published on March 28, 2014, at
18 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-kHNxz5NFI&t=178s, Sweet Petes lost
19 $17,000 that year and lost $3,000 the previous year, even though Sweet Petes was
20 not paying Peter Behringer even a fair wage of $12.00 per hour as an employee.1
21 Peter Behringer and Alison Behringer made only $10,000 combined in 2013.
22 56. Also during this time period before 2014, none of Sweet Petes
23 products were marketed using Sugarfinas intellectual property. The products
24 shown in the episode of The Profit are markedly different from the products sold by
25 Sweet Petes today, and used generic packaging with an entirely different look and
26 feel from Sugarfinas distinctive packaging. In contrast to Sugarfinas clean lines,

57. Sweet Petes experienced a dramatic turnaround in success and
15
profitability after it began infringing Sugarfinas trade dress, trademarks, patent,
16
and copyrights. In an episode of the Shark Tank Podcast, published on September
17
21, 2016, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwpHRzdl5T4, Peter Behringer
18
stated that Sweet Petes was earning revenue of $260,000 per month (or $3,120,000
19
per year), up from $7,500 per month (or 90,000 per year) before 2014.2 The newly
20
revamped Sweet Petes is shown to rely heavily on several design elements of
21
Sugarfinas distinctive packaging and marketing.

SUGARFINA, INC.S COMPLAINT
Case 2:17-cv-04456 Document 1 Filed 06/15/17 Page 21 of 40 Page ID #:21

1 60. Sweet Petes adoption of a trade dress that copies the Sugarfina
2 Product Trade Dress and its use of various trade names that infringe Sugarfinas
3 trademark rights is likely to cause confusion or mistake, or to deceive consumers,
4 purchasers, and others into thinking that Sweet Petes products are Sugarfina
5 products, or that they are sponsored by or affiliated with Sugarfina, when they are
6 not.
7 61. Sugarfinas goodwill among consumers is closely tied to its position
8 as an outlier in confectioners productsthat of luxury and sophistication. Sweet
9 Petes flagrant and relentless copying of Sugarfinas intellectual property rights in
10 its candy products not only allows Sweet Petes to benefit from Sugarfinas
11 investment, but it also threatens to diminish the very important goodwill that
T ROUTM AN S ANDERS LLP

12 Sugarfina has cultivated with its products. The value of such goodwill is evident in
I R V I N E , C A 92614-2545
5 PAR K PLA ZA
S U I T E 1400

13 part in the success that resulted from Sweet Petes wrongful appropriation: after
14 stealing Sugarfinas aesthetic and branding strategies, Sweet Petes was resurrected
15 from a failing company that lost $17,000 per year to a profitable company
16 generating an annualized revenue of $3,120,000.
17 62. Sugarfinas efforts to address Sweet Petes pervasive copying of
18 Sugarfina's innovations and intellectual property directly with Sweet Petes have
19 been unsuccessful.
20 63. Sweet Petes chose to infringe Sugarfinas patent, trade dress, and
21 trademark rights through the design, packaging and promotion of its candy
22 products, and it did so willfully to trade upon the goodwill that Sugarfina has
23 developed in connection with its luxury branded products.
24 Infringement of Sugarfinas Trade Dress
25 64. Sugarfina is informed and believes that Sweet Petes began
26 producing, selling, and marketing its copycat products after Sugarfinas first use of
27 the asserted trade dress.

13 74. An ordinary observer of Sweet Petes candy packaging and


14 Sugarfinas patented design, giving such attention that a candy purchaser usually
15 gives, would find the two designs to be substantially the same. The 641 Patent
16 claims a packaging including three-by-three cells spaced apart and nested fully
17 within a rectangular box with high, straight walls, with a folding cover top with a
18 pull-tab at the end. As shown above, Sweet Petes design also includes three-by-
19 three cells of transparent cubes spaced apart and nested fully within a rectangular
20 box with high, straight walls, with a folding cover top with a pull-tab at the end.
21 An ordinary observer would recognize that Sweet Petes design is substantially the
22 same as the patented design in the 641 Patent. The overall impression of the two
23 designs is substantially the same.
24 75. Further, an ordinary observer familiar with the prior art would be
25 deceived into believing the Sweet Petes design is the same as the design patented
26 in the 641 Patent. Of the many prior art candy packaging types, an ordinary
27 observer would recognize that none of the prior art candy packaging types include,

4 76. Indeed, it is axiomatic that the 641 Patent is infringed by Sweet
5 Petes design because in the eye of an ordinary observer, the Sweet Petes design is

1 and its designer candy bento boxes at Reg. Nos. VA0001963482 and
2 VA0001963483.
3 78. In a blatant attempt to copy Sugarfina, Sweet Petes designed and
4 developed near exact imitations of Sugarfinas registered works.
5 79. At least as early as 2016, Sweet Petes began actively selling these
6 infringing products to retailers and unwitting consumers. Sweet Petes infringing
7 products are strikingly similar imitations of Sugarfinas protected products. Sweet
8 Petes copied all the original and distinctive qualities of Sugarfinas products,
9 including the configuration of three-by-three cells or three cells of transparent cubes
10 spaced apart and nested fully within a rectangular box with high, straight walls; the
11 use of a die-cut labels on the clear cubes within the outer box; and specific graphic

14 80. Sweet Petes has no license from Sugarfina to make replicas of
15 Sugarfinas registered original works. On the contrary, at least as early as March
16 15, 2016, Sugarfina demanded that Sweet Petes cease its infringing activities.
17 Sweet Petes refused to comply and continued knowingly and willfully to create,
18 market, and distribute products infringing Sugarfinas copyrights.
19 FIRST CLAIM FOR RELIEF
20 (Trade Dress Infringement)
21 (Lanham Act Section 43(a), 15 U.S.C. 1125(a))
22 81. Sugarfina incorporates and realleges the preceding paragraphs of this
23 Complaint as though set forth in full.
24 82. Sugarfina is the owner of all right and title to the distinctive
25 Sugarfina Trade Dress. The Sugarfina Trade Dress, as embodied in Sugarfina
26 products, has acquired secondary meaning, and is not functional. In addition, the
27 Sugarfina Trade Dress, embodied in the packaging for the Sugarfina products, is
28 inherently distinctive and not functional.

SUGARFINA, INC.S COMPLAINT
Case 2:17-cv-04456 Document 1 Filed 06/15/17 Page 30 of 40 Page ID #:30

1 83. In addition, based on extensive and consistent advertising, promotion


2 and sales throughout the United States, the Sugarfina Trade Dress has acquired
3 distinctiveness and enjoys secondary meaning among consumers, identifying
4 Sugarfina as the source of these products.
5 84. Sugarfinas extensive promotion of the distinctive Sugarfina Trade
6 Dress has resulted in Sugarfinas acquisition of valuable, legally protected rights in
7 the Sugarfina Trade Dress as well as considerable customer goodwill.
8 85. Sweet Petes line of products has misappropriated the Sugarfina
9 Trade Dress by mimicking a combination of several elements of that trade dress.
10 The manufacture and distribution of Sweet Pete products with packaging and
11 product design features that mimic a combination of several elements of the

13 deceive the consumer as to the affiliation, connection or association of Sweet Petes


14 with Sugarfina, or as to the origin, sponsorship, or approval by Sugarfina of Sweet
15 Petes goods, services or commercial activities.
16 86. Sweet Petes actions constitute unfair competition and false
17 designation or origin in violation of Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C.
18 1125(a).
19 87. Sweet Petes knew of Sugarfinas Product Trade Dress when it
20 designed its products, and has refused to change its product or packaging design in
21 response to Sugarfinas request. Accordingly, Sweet Petes infringement has been
22 and continues to be intentional, willful and without regard to Sugarfinas Product
23 Trade Dress.
24 88. As a direct and proximate result of Sweet Petes unlawful acts and
25 practices, including those set forth above, Sweet Petes has caused, is causing, and
26 unless immediately enjoined by this Court, will continue to cause immediate and
27 irreparable harm to Sugarfina, for which there is no adequate remedy at law, and for
28 which it is entitled to injunctive relief.

16 101. Sugarfina will suffer and is suffering irreparable harm from Sweet
17 Petes infringement of Registered Trademarks insofar as Sugarfinas invaluable
18 goodwill is being eroded by continuing infringement.
19 102. Sugarfina has no adequate remedy at law to compensate it for the
20 loss of business reputation, customers, market position, confusion of potential
21 customers and goodwill flowing from Sweet Petes infringing activities. Pursuant
22 to 15 U.S.C. 1116, Sugarfina is entitled to an injunction against Sweet Petes

2 Sugarfina and Sweet Petes, in violation of 15 U.S.C. 1114(a).
3 111. Sugarfina is informed and believes, and on that basis alleges, that
4 Sweet Petes infringement of Sugarfinas Registered Trademarks and unregistered
5 marks, as described herein, has been and continues to be intentional, willful and
6 without regard to Sugarfinas rights in its Registered Trademarks and unregistered
7 common law marks.
8 112. Sugarfina is informed and believes, and on that basis alleges, that
9 Sweet Petes has gained profits by virtue of its infringement of Sugarfinas
10 Registered Trademarks and unregistered common law marks.

14 Sweet Petes continuing infringement. Sugarfina has no adequate remedy at law to
15 compensate it for the loss of business reputation, customers, market position,
16 confusion of potential customers and goodwill flowing from the Sweet Petes
17 infringing activities.
18 114. Sugarfina is entitled to an injunction against Sweet Petes continuing
19 infringement of Sugarfinas Registered Trademarks and unregistered common law
20 marks. Unless enjoined, Sweet Petes will continue its infringing conduct.
21 115. Because Sweet Petes actions have been committed with intent to

23 treble its actual damages or Sweet Petes profits, whichever is greater, and to an
24 award of costs and, this being an exceptional case, reasonable attorneys fees

1 FOURTH CLAIM FOR RELIEF


2 (Unfair Business Practices California Business and Professions Code
3 17200, et seq.)
4 116. Sugarfina incorporates and realleges the preceding paragraphs of this
5 Complaint as though set forth in full.
6 117. The acts of Sweet Petes described above constitute fraudulent and
7 unlawful business practices as defined by California Business & Professions Code
8 17200, et seq.
9 118. Sugarfina has valid and protectable prior rights in the Sugarfina
10 Product Trade Dress, and the Registered Trademarks. The Sugarfina Product Trade
11 Dress identifies Sugarfina as the source of its candy products. The Sugarfina
T ROUTM AN S ANDERS LLP

12 Product Trade Dress is inherently distinctive, and, through Sugarfinas long use,
I R V I N E , C A 92614-2545
5 PAR K PLA ZA
S U I T E 1400

13 has come to be associated solely with Sugarfina as the source of the products on
14 which it is used.
15 119. Sweet Petes use of its infringing trade dress is likely to cause
16 confusion as to the source of Sweet Petes products and is likely to cause others to
17 be confused or mistaken into believing that there is a relationship between Sweet
18 Petes and Sugarfina or that Sweet Petes products are affiliated with or sponsored
19 by Sugarfina.
20 120. The above-described acts and practices by Sweet Petes are likely to
21 mislead or deceive the general public and therefore constitute fraudulent business
22 practices in violation of California Business & Professions Code 17200, et seq.
23 121. The above-described acts constitute unfair competition under Section
24 43(a) of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1125(a), and trademark and trade dress
25 infringement under Section 32 of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1114, and are
26 therefore unlawful acts in violation of California Business & Professions Code
27 17200, et seq.

SUGARFINA, INC.S COMPLAINT
Case 2:17-cv-04456 Document 1 Filed 06/15/17 Page 36 of 40 Page ID #:36

1 122. The above-described acts also constitute unlawful infringement of


2 Sugarfinas registered patent and copyright rights under the Patent Act, 35 U.S.C.
3 271, and the Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. 501, and are therefore unlawful acts in
4 violation of California Business & Professions Code 17200, et seq.
5 123. Sweet Petes acted willfully and intentionally in designing its
6 infringing trade dress and product packaging, with full knowledge of Sugarfinas
7 prior rights in the distinctive Sugarfina Product Trade Dress, Registered
8 Trademarks, its common law trademarks, its patent rights, and its copyrights, and
9 with an intent to cause confusion or mistake or to deceive customers into believing
10 that there is an affiliation between Sweet Petes and Sugarfina or between Sweet
11 Petes products and Sugarfinas products.

12 124. The unlawful and fraudulent business practices of Sweet Petes


I R V I N E , C A 92614-2545
5 PAR K PLA ZA
S U I T E 1400

13 described above present a continuing threat to, and is meant to deceive members of,
14 the public in that Sweet Petes desires to promote its products by wrongfully
15 trading on the goodwill of the Sugarfina Product Trade Dress, the Registered
16 Trademarks, its common law trademarks, its patent rights, and its copyrights.
17 125. As a direct and proximate result of these acts, Sweet Petes has
18 received, and will continue to profit from, the strength of the Sugarfina Product
19 Trade Dress, the Registered Marks, Sugarfinas common law trademarks, its patent
20 rights, and its copyrights.
21 126. As a direct and proximate result of Sweet Petes wrongful conduct,
22 Sugarfina has been injured in fact and has lost money and profits, and such harm
23 will continue unless Sweet Petes acts are enjoined by the Court.
24 127. Sugarfina has no adequate remedy at law for Sweet Petes continuing
25 violation of Sugarfinas rights.
26 128. Sweet Petes should be required to restore to Sugarfina any and all
27 profits earned as a result of their unlawful and fraudulent actions, or provide
28 Sugarfina with any other restitutionary relief as the Court deems appropriate.

3 129. Sugarfina incorporates and realleges the preceding paragraphs of this

5 130. As a result of the conduct alleged herein, Sweet Petes has been

13 132. Sweet Petes has infringed and continues to infringe the 641 Patent
14 by using, selling and/or offering to sell in the United States, and/or importing into
15 the United States one or more of Sweet Petes infringing products identified in this
16 Complaint, which embody the design covered by the 641 Patent.
17 133. On information and belief, Sweet Petes infringement of the 641
18 Patent has taken place with full knowledge of the patent and is willful, deliberate,
19 and intentional, and therefore gives rise to an exceptional case under 35 U.S.C.
20 285.
21 134. Sweet Petes infringement of one or more claims of the 641 Patent
22 has injured Sugarfina, the precise amount of which cannot be ascertained at this
23 time. Sugarfina is entitled to recover damages adequate to compensate for Sweet
24 Petes infringement, which in no event can be less than a reasonable royalty.
25 135. Sweet Petes has caused Sugarfina substantial damages and
26 irreparable injury by its infringement of one or more claims of the 641 Patent, for
27 which there is no adequate remedy at law. Sugarfina will continue to suffer
28 damages and irreparable injury unless and until Sweet Petes infringement is

8 VA0001963482 and VA0001963483.
9 138. Sugarfina has never granted to Sweet Petes any license to make or

11 139. By means of the actions complained of herein, Sweet Petes has

15 reproductions of the registered works without authorization from Sugarfina.
16 140. Sugarfina is entitled to an injunction restraining Sweet Petes, and all
17 persons acting in concert with it, from engaging in further acts in violation of the

19 141. Sugarfina is further entitled to recover from Sweet Petes the

believes that to the best of the signatory's knowledge and belief, no other persons, except, if applicable, concurrent users, have the right to use the
mark in commerce, either in the identical form or in such near resemblance as to be likely, when used on or in connection with the goods/services
of such other persons, to cause confusion or mistake, or to deceive. The signatory being warned that willful false statements and the like are
punishable by fine or imprisonment, or both, under 18 U.S.C. 1001, and that such willful false statements and the like may jeopardize the
validity of the application or any registration resulting therefrom, declares that all statements made of his/her own knowledge are true and all
statements made on information and belief are believed to be true.
