The plaintiff holds Strawberry Fields Treatment Center LLC; Florida Rehabilitation and Recovery Services LLC, doing business as Strawberry Fields Treatment; and The Renew Counseling Center Inc., doing business as Rock Recovery Center, responsible because the defendants allegedly overtook plaintiff's rehabflorida.com domain, linked it to their website and modified plaintiff's copyrighted content without permission.
