Causes of Action

Concise paragraphs stating what they have done and what laws they've violated.

These statements are the ones we used when we sued Chalk & Vermilion Fine Arts & Sevenarts:

(17 U.S.C. 101 et seq.)

1. Plaintiffs repeat and re-allege paragraphs 1 though 34 as if fully set forth in this Paragraph.

2. There is a real and actual controversy between Plaintiffs and Defendants regarding whether Plaintiffs' actions constitute copyright infringement. Defendants have placed the at-home eBay auction business of the Plaintiffs in jeopardy and have threatened Plaintiffs with legal action.

3. Plaintiffs seek a declaratory judgment and injunctive relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ง 2201 - that selling fabric containing the above mentioned images of Betty Boop is not an infringement of copyright as the images are fair use and therefore protected use by Shamash & Sons and the Plaintiffs and others.

Etc, etc, etc.

This is an exmple only. You will have to provide the wording that applies to your situation. Do not copy and use as you will be wrong.

Here you are attaching the specific acts of the defendants to specific statutes. Some of your claims may include state laws. They get entered here as well.

There are plenty of examples on the internet. Find them, read them, and use what you like.


We are not lawyers and we cannot give you legal advice. Our opinions and the information provided is based upon our experiences in federal court as well as research. You should always contact an attorney if you have a legal problem.
