It may not be as big as UGG Australia's payday, but it's still a lot of moola!

Burberry is $100 million richer, thanks to a default judgement made by a Manhattan Federal court on Thursday.

Judge Thomas Griesa awarded the British brand the hefty sum of money after the defendants, a network of Chinese Internet counterfeiters, failed to show up in court.

It also didn't help that the online fraudsters, who were accused of selling at least 22 types of fake goods bearing Burberry trademarks, never responded to the initial complaint filed back in January.

In addition to the 9 figure judgement, Burberry now has the power to shut down other infringing sites and hold third-party hosts like Google and Facebook accountable for associating with them.

Congrats!
