Jo-Ann Fabrics is being sued by Coach for selling fleece they believe is causing "consumer confusion".

Coach claims in their lawsuit, the fabric store is selling Blizzard Fleece that features elongated Os, which they believe is too close to their trademark Cs.

But wait, there's more! On top of the copyright infringement claim, the leather goods company also accuses Jo-Ann's of: trademark counterfeiting, false designation of origin, false advertising and trademark dilution.

Ouch.

In total, Coach is seeking "$2 million per counterfeit mark, per type of counterfeit good, punitive damages, attorneys’ fees and other costs".

Double ouch.
