WLG Helps RKCC Defeat BWP Media Claim

The Whitaker Law Group assisted local startup, Rich Kids Clothing Company, to defeat a copyright infringement claim brought by BWP Media. If you are not familiar with BWP Media, you should just Google "BWP Media copyright".

BWP Media sued Seattle startup RKCC for copyright infringement for allegedly using three images of Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate on RKCC's website.  RKCC denied any culpability and pushed forward with the case.

Both sides filed motions with the Court with BWP Media asking the Court to slam RKCC, and we asked the Court to throw the case out.  After several rounds of briefing, the Court handed down a ruling in RKCC's favor throwing out BWP Media's case.
