Aurora Ty Compariso#2C1AD16

Aurora World, Inc. has filed a lawsuit against Ty, Inc. for copyright infringement regarding Aurora’s plush line YooHoo & Friends and Ty’s Beanie Boos. The lawsuit, which is filed in federal court, also claims four other violations based on the Lanham Act, California Business and Professions Code, and common law for misappropriation and unfair competition.

Greenberg Traurig, LLP, on behalf of Aurora, has filed a motion for a preliminary injunction on December 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Aurora’s papers in support of its motion include comparison images, such as the one above, of YooHoo & Friends and Beanie Boos characters.
