LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – A federal judge has ordered more than 40 foreign online merchants to each pay $200,000 in damages in a University of Arkansas System lawsuit alleging the sale of counterfeit Razorback merchandise. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that judge Gary Feinerman signed an order Wednesday listing 43 defaulting defendants who didn’t answer the lawsuit or appear “in any way.” The order states the defendants are liable for “willful federal trademark infringement” that caused $8.6 million in damages.
