MONOPOLIES AND TRADE PRACTICES
REGISTRATION AND PROTECTION OF TRADEMARKS
48-514. Remedies. Any owner of a mark registered under this act may proceed by suit to enjoin the manufacture, use, display or sale of any counterfeits or imitations thereof and any court of competent jurisdiction may grant injunctions to restrain such manufacture, use, display or sale as may be by the court deemed just and reasonable, and may require the defendants to pay to such owner all profits derived from and all damages suffered by reason of such wrongful manufacture, use, display or sale. The court may also order that any such counterfeits or imitations in the possession or under the control of any defendant in the case be delivered to an officer of the court, or to the complainant, to be destroyed. The court, in its discretion, may enter judgment for an amount not to exceed three (3) times such profits and damages and may award reasonable attorney’s fees and costs of suit to the prevailing party in such cases where the court finds the other party committed the wrongful acts with knowledge or in bad faith or otherwise, as the circumstances of the case may warrant.
The enumeration of any right or remedy herein shall not affect a registrant’s right to prosecute under any criminal law of this state.
