Alleged Counterfeit Distributor Denies Accusations

Radius International claims no part in apparent illegal distributions

We previously reported on a lawsuit between a team of educational textbook publishers "Publishers" and a logistics company. The Publishers claimed that Radius International, Inc. ("Radius") was responsible for the production, maintaining, and distribution of counterfeit textbooks on an international scale.

While details are few in its Answer, Radius outright refutes all accusations and argues that it has never “engaged in any activity that infringes –directly, indirectly or vicariously –on the Plaintiffs’ IP rights.” The defendants further claim that it “did not hold title to; did not control marketing, advertising or price of; had no responsibility for generating or consummating a sale of; had no authority to control or jointly own; did not sell or offer to sell; did not use; did not import; and did not present as its own the Accused Products.” Radius is requesting that the courts issue a judgment in their favor.

We will continue to provide updates in this ongoing matter.
