BRISTOL, PA --Megatouch LLC reports that Morocco's Commercial Court of Casablanca, at a public hearing, found defendant Hassan Ait Ouhlal guilty of selling videogames similar to Megatouch products and illegally labeling them with Megatouch's registered trademark. The Bristol, PA-based game company had discovered the counterfeiting last year.
The court ordered that Ait Ouhlal immediately cease exhibition, sale and distribution of counterfeit products bearing the Megatouch brand. The defendant also was ordered to pay damages to Megatouch and legal fees to the court. The judgment is to be published in two newspapers, in both French and Arabic. Ait Ouhlal has 15 days to appeal the court's decision.
"Megatouch is committed to protecting its intellectual property worldwide," said company president Brennan McTernan. "This is a great victory for Megatouch and its legitimate partners, and we thank Moroccan authorities for taking action."
Megatouch has been a leader in the development of bar and tavern games for more than 35 years.
