Klipsch Audio Technologies filed suit last week in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana against three Web sites they allege have competed unfairly with the loudspeaker manufacturer. The suit asks for recovery of damages from DigitalCraze.com, ReliableAudioVideo.com and SoundCityExpo.com, as well as an injunction to prevent the sites from pushing authorized dealers to transship Klipsch products, interfering with the relationship between Klipsch and its authorized dealers, and trademark and copyright infringement. In January and December 2004, Klipsch sued six other Web sites on similar grounds. Says Klipsch President Mike Klipsch, “The Web sites we’ve sued in the past removed any trace of Klipsch from their Web sites just days after we filed the lawsuits.” As a result of those suits, the Web sites -- brandnamez.com, crazyeddie.com, 50TopSellers.com, AuthorizedElectronics.com, TheBestPriceStore.com and HomeTheaterPhiles.com -- are banned from ever selling Klipsch products.
