JACKSONVILLE – A Finnish man claims his logo was used by a Florida website without his permission.
Antti Porkka filed a complaint on March 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville Division against University of South Florida board of trustees, Florida Community Health Action Information Network Inc., and Enroll America Inc., doing business as Covering Tampa Bay alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he sustained damages from having his "H" logo copied without his consent. The plaintiff holds University of South Florida board of trustees, Florida Community Health Action Information Network Inc. and Enroll America Inc., doing business as Covering Tampa Bay responsible because the defendants allegedly publicly displayed plaintiff's "H" graphical logo on the CoveringTampaBay.org website.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks order to impound all copies of the "H" logo, enjoin the defendants, all monetary remedies, profits, treble, enhanced, punitive damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Charles M. Landrum of Marks Gray P.A. in Jacksonville Beach.
