Beats Goes After Chinese Counterfeiters With Multimillion-Dollar Lawsuit
Just over a month after Apple’s acquisition of Beats Electronics, the headphone maker made its first major post-acquisition move by filing a lawsuit against Chinese counterfeiters. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on July 9, names as defendants “individuals and business entities who, upon information and belief, reside in the People’s Republic of China or other foreign jurisdictions.” The lawsuit claims that websites selling counterfeit Beats headphones earn up to $135 billion in annual sales, a figure large enough to make pursuing even an elusive target like Chinese counterfeiters worth the effort.
