Should Covington win, ADF will appeal
June 4, 2004,
NEW YORK — Despite the ruling by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York that a Covington Industries pattern, called “Maxwell,” has a valid copyright, American Decorative Fabrics (ADF) “ultimately intends to appeal the district court’s ruling, should the final decision in the case favor Covington,” said Gary Stein, chief operating officer.
“ADF remains committed to challenging what it considers Covington’s overreaching claims, and it has actively been defending the case, because it strongly believes that companies should not be permitted to monopolize a common plaid design,” Stein added.
