Forever 21 in court over Photoshop piracy allegations

Young fashion retailer Forever 21 is being sued for allegedly using pirated copies of Adobe Photoshop.

The company could face a large fine if a Californian court finds in favour of Adobe, which said the high street chain used the copies of Photoshop “even after being contacted by Adobe regarding the infringement”.

The lawsuit, which was filed last week, includes the registration numbers of the software products involved, plus dates on which the software was used, according to Sky News.

Adobe said it was a case of “wilful, intentional and malicious copyright infringement” and is asking the court to issue an injunction and award a cash sum for lost revenue, court costs and additional damages.
