Angry Birds developer Rovio has won a court case against Monterey Park, CA-based Toy Amazon Corp. sold fake Angry Birds products.
The copyright case got filed last September, and the vending machine importer and operator failed to present a defense, and U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest awarded the developer with $4.3 million for trademark and copyright infringement, according to Bloomberg.
Angry Birds gets 3.3 million hours of playtime daily, and a significant amount of Rovio’s revenue comes from associated merchandise. Merchandise sales have dropped to $44 million in 2014, from its 2012 peak.
Toy Amazon wasn’t alone in this case, but the other defendants settled with the developer before. The court issued an order barring further copyright and trademark infringements of Rovio’s intellectual property.
