brown outline outside the black; a black-tipped nose with a thin black mustache below;
and the teeth outlined in gold and in Figure 13, the teeth outlined in gold have dividing
lines on the back three molars. On information and belief, masks of Figure 12 and 13
differences are the result from intentional efforts by Spencer to disguise copying of
Plaintiffs works while quickly and cheaply producing masks, evidencing a willful intent

Case 5:16-cv-00432-D Document 1 Filed 04/27/16 Page 21 of 24

to obscure the blatant copying undertaken by Defendants. Full page version of the mask
shown in Figure 12 is included as Exhibit 42 to this Complaint.
25. The infringing masks are strikingly similar to the corresponding copyrighted
works created by Plaintiff.

CAUSES OF ACTION
First Cause of Action
Copyright Infringement
26. Plaintiff restates and incorporates herein by reference the preceding and
subsequent allegations of this Complaint.
27. Plaintiffs artwork consists of original works of authorship fixed in a tangible
medium of expression. Plaintiffs works have been registered with the United States
Copyright Office, or are subject to applications for copyright registration and, as an
individual with exclusive rights of copyright protection; Plaintiff has the exclusive rights
of reproduction, preparation of derivative works, distribution, and display of same.
17 U.S.C. 106.
28. Plaintiffs works were available online and Defendants had access to pictures
of Plaintiffs works.
29. Defendants copied, distributed and sold, without Plaintiffs knowledge,
consent or permission, Plaintiffs works for Defendants commercial use and benefit,
including without limitation, for the purpose of financial gain and obtaining a competitive
edge over Plaintiff.

Case 5:16-cv-00432-D Document 1 Filed 04/27/16 Page 22 of 24

30. The foregoing acts of infringement have been willful, intentional, and in
disregard of and with indifference to the rights of the Plaintiff.
31. As a result, of Defendants infringement of the Plaintiffs exclusive rights
under copyright, the Plaintiff is entitled to relief pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 504, and to its
attorneys fees and costs pursuant to 17 USC 505.
32. Defendants conduct is causing, and unless enjoined and restrained by this
Court, will continue to cause, the Plaintiff great and irreparable injury that cannot fully be
compensated or measured in money. The Plaintiff has no adequate remedy at law.
Pursuant to 17 USC. 502 and 503, the Plaintiff is entitled to injunctive relief
prohibiting Defendants from further infringing the Plaintiffs copyrights and ordering that
each Defendant destroy or surrender any copies of the above named works made in
violation of the Plaintiffs copyrights.

Second Cause of Action


Vicarious And/Or Contributory Copyright Infringement
33. Plaintiff restates and incorporates herein by reference the preceding and
subsequent allegations of this Complaint.
34. Defendants copied, reproduced, sold, and distributed Plaintiffs protected
artwork for Defendants financial gain.
35. Defendants knew or should have known that their conduct would infringe
Plaintiffs rights in their copyrighted works, to wit, Defendants had actual or constructive
knowledge regarding copying, reproducing, distributing and selling the subject works,

22
S:\My Files\Shelby, Ann\PLASTICLAND\Pleadings\Complaint20160329.docx

Case 5:16-cv-00432-D Document 1 Filed 04/27/16 Page 23 of 24

and Defendants failed or refused to stop same, which resulted in an infringement of


protected works of expression, and that said conduct would damage Plaintiff.
36. By copying, reproducing, distributing and selling Plaintiffs works for their
own commercial use and benefit, Defendants interfered with, impeded and/or prevented
Plaintiffs ability to realize commercial gain from her creative efforts. Specifically,
Defendants poached particular customers who desired to obtain masks using Plaintiffs
works. In addition, the sale of copies of Plaintiffs copyrighted work to Plaintiffs
potential customers has decreased Plaintiffs ability to build further markets for her
registered works.
37. As a result, of Defendants conduct, Plaintiff has been denied the right and
opportunity to create business relationships and to generate income therefrom.
WHEREFORE, Plaintiff respectfully asks the Court to rule in her favor and
against the Defendants, and award Plaintiff all actual, compensatory, consequential,
direct, and indirect damages as a result of Defendants infringement and related wrongful
conduct; awarding Plaintiff for all monies lost; awarding Plaintiff exemplary damages;
impounding all works wrongfully copied and enjoining Defendants from such future
wrongful conduct; awarding Plaintiff the costs and expenses of this lawsuit, including
reasonable attorneys fees; interest; and such other and further relief as this Court deems
proper. More to the point, Plaintiff asks the Court to:
Enter preliminary and permanent injunctions providing Defendants shall be enjoined
from directly or indirectly infringing the Plaintiffs rights in the registered woks and

ordering Defendants to destroy or surrender to Plaintiff all copies of Plaintiffs


registered works in Defendants possession, custody, or control;
Award actual damages or statutory damages pursuant to 17 USC 504, at the election
of the Plaintiff;
Award Plaintiffs costs in this case;
Award Plaintiffs reasonable attorney fees; and
Provide such other and further relief as the Court deems proper.

Q: What's your favor ite thing to do when you'r e not at wor k?


A: I have to say spending time with my 2-year-old son. I also love
anything music (writing, playing, listening). Some people call me a
walking mp3 player due to the amount of music I listen to/know
about. Also, anything about the Universe is another guilty pleasure!

Q: What song have you been jamming out to lately?


A: That's a tough question... I can't say a specific song, but I can
give my current top artist/album in certain categories:
Rap: Ces Cru - Constant Energy Struggles
Rock: Life On Repeat - Struggle + Sleep
Electro/Dubstep: Zomboy - Reanimated
Metal: Volumes - VIA
Q: What's your greatest dream in life?
A: I have to say I have a lot of dreams I would like to achieve, but
first and foremost, I want to be a great father to my son. I am so
diverse in beliefs and I am not afraid of being who I am, and I just
want him to know that it is ok to accept people based on their soul,
not their appearance. I feel that I have been given this chance and I
want to pass it on.
Q: You're str anded on a desert island. Excluding food, water and
means of escape, what thr ee items (one being an Earthbound
pr oduct) would you take?
A: I would say I would have to take a fishing pole to relax on the
beach and get some delicious sea food! Also, I would bring a fire
starter kit for those cold nights, and I think one of the awesome
tapestries (maybe the great wave) to have a super awesome
hammock during the day and a shelter during the night! I think it
would also make a super sweet cape to have during the rescue!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ATTORNEYS COMPLETING CIVIL COVER SHEET FORM JS 44


Authority For Civil Cover Sheet
The JS 44 civil cover sheet and the information contained herein neither replaces nor supplements the filings and service of pleading or other papers as
required by law, except as provided by local rules of court. This form, approved by the Judicial Conference of the United States in September 1974, is
required for the use of the Clerk of Court for the purpose of initiating the civil docket sheet. Consequently, a civil cover sheet is submitted to the Clerk of
Court for each civil complaint filed. The attorney filing a case should complete the form as follows:
I.(a)

(b)

(c)

Plaintiffs-Defendants. Enter names (last, first, middle initial) of plaintiff and defendant. If the plaintiff or defendant is a government agency, use
only the full name or standard abbreviations. If the plaintiff or defendant is an official within a government agency, identify first the agency and
then the official, giving both name and title.
County of Residence. For each civil case filed, except U.S. plaintiff cases, enter the name of the county where the first listed plaintiff resides at the
time of filing. In U.S. plaintiff cases, enter the name of the county in which the first listed defendant resides at the time of filing. (NOTE: In land
condemnation cases, the county of residence of the "defendant" is the location of the tract of land involved.)
Attorneys. Enter the firm name, address, telephone number, and attorney of record. If there are several attorneys, list them on an attachment, noting
in this section "(see attachment)".

II.

Jurisdiction. The basis of jurisdiction is set forth under Rule 8(a), F.R.Cv.P., which requires that jurisdictions be shown in pleadings. Place an "X"
in one of the boxes. If there is more than one basis of jurisdiction, precedence is given in the order shown below.
United States plaintiff. (1) Jurisdiction based on 28 U.S.C. 1345 and 1348. Suits by agencies and officers of the United States are included here.
United States defendant. (2) When the plaintiff is suing the United States, its officers or agencies, place an "X" in this box.
Federal question. (3) This refers to suits under 28 U.S.C. 1331, where jurisdiction arises under the Constitution of the United States, an amendment
to the Constitution, an act of Congress or a treaty of the United States. In cases where the U.S. is a party, the U.S. plaintiff or defendant code takes
precedence, and box 1 or 2 should be marked.
Diversity of citizenship. (4) This refers to suits under 28 U.S.C. 1332, where parties are citizens of different states. When Box 4 is checked, the
citizenship of the different parties must be checked. (See Section III below; NOTE: federal question actions take precedence over diversity
cases.)

III.

Residence (citizenship) of Principal Parties. This section of the JS 44 is to be completed if diversity of citizenship was indicated above. Mark this
section for each principal party.

IV.

Nature of Suit. Place an "X" in the appropriate box. If the nature of suit cannot be determined, be sure the cause of action, in Section VI below, is
sufficient to enable the deputy clerk or the statistical clerk(s) in the Administrative Office to determine the nature of suit. If the cause fits more than
one nature of suit, select the most definitive.

V.

Origin. Place an "X" in one of the six boxes.


Original Proceedings. (1) Cases which originate in the United States district courts.
Removed from State Court. (2) Proceedings initiated in state courts may be removed to the district courts under Title 28 U.S.C., Section 1441.
When the petition for removal is granted, check this box.
Remanded from Appellate Court. (3) Check this box for cases remanded to the district court for further action. Use the date of remand as the filing
date.
Reinstated or Reopened. (4) Check this box for cases reinstated or reopened in the district court. Use the reopening date as the filing date.
Transferred from Another District. (5) For cases transferred under Title 28 U.S.C. Section 1404(a). Do not use this for within district transfers or
multidistrict litigation transfers.
Multidistrict Litigation. (6) Check this box when a multidistrict case is transferred into the district under authority of Title 28 U.S.C. Section 1407.
When this box is checked, do not check (5) above.

VI.

Cause of Action. Report the civil statute directly related to the cause of action and give a brief description of the cause. Do not cite jurisdictional
statutes unless diversity. Example: U.S. Civil Statute: 47 USC 553 Brief Description: Unauthorized reception of cable service

VII.

Requested in Complaint. Class Action. Place an "X" in this box if you are filing a class action under Rule 23, F.R.Cv.P.
Demand. In this space enter the actual dollar amount being demanded or indicate other demand, such as a preliminary injunction.
Jury Demand. Check the appropriate box to indicate whether or not a jury is being demanded.

VIII. Related Cases. This section of the JS 44 is used to reference related pending cases, if any. If there are related pending cases, insert the docket
numbers and the corresponding judge names for such cases.
Date and Attorney Signature. Date and sign the civil cover sheet.
