Israeli Store Owner Sued by Warner Brothers

Looney Tunes

Warner Brothers is suing an Israeli store in Tel Aviv for 100, 000 Shekels ($25, 000), because it alleges that he has been selling items with the images of copyrighted Looney Tunes cartoon characters on them without consent.

YnetNews has reported that a Warner Bros. rep visited the store and purchased a carpet with the image of Tweety Bird on it. The local Tel Aviv shop, which is owned by Zion Shekalim, sells all sorts of carpets with the images of other Warner bros. characters like Bugs Bunny and Fred Flintstone.

The media company said that after conducting tests it determined that the images on the carpets were nothing but poor copies of official images that it owns. It stated, “the defendant, like many others in Israel who act the same way, is causing serious damage to the marketing efforts of original products in Israel.”
