Adobe's complaint alleged that Westwood Computer & Networking had trafficked in unauthorized Adobe software products intended and labeled for educational distribution. Adobe alleged that when these unauthorized products were distributed by Westwood Computer & Networking, they had been opened and the ``EDUCATIONAL'' stickering had been removed, causing end users to believe that they were receiving legitimate, authorized, and retail versions of Adobe software, when in fact end users received adulterated and unauthorized versions.
Adobe sued Westwood Computer & Networking for copyright infringement, federal trademark infringement, federal trademark dilution, violations of the Lanham Act, unfair competition, California trademark infringement, California trademark dilution, and unjust enrichment. Adobe sought damages for its lost profits, calculated as the difference between the wholesale price for a full retail version and an Educational version of Adobe software. Adobe also asked the Court to order defendants to disgorge any sums earned as a result of trading in Adobe software, to impose punitive damages, and to order Westwood Computer & Networking to pay Adobe's attorneys' fees.
Westwood Computer & Networking admitted its wrongdoing but has since agreed to settle this case.
Details on the settlement are not available.
