This week, renowned ED HARDY clothing designer, Christian Audigier, formerly of Von Dutch fame, and his company, Nervous Tattoo, Inc. obtained a Preliminary Injunction against JLJ Inc. dba Jes Joy Inc. aka Joy Jeans and other related defendants, for alleged trademark and copyright infringement relating to counterfeit Ed Hardy apparel as indicated in documents filed in the United States District Court, for the Central District of California.
The Ed Hardy clothing line, designed by Christian Audigier, a favorite of celebrities since its introduction, features the tattoo inspired artwork of famed artist Don Ed Hardy.
