COMPLAINT

Sabika, Inc. (Sabika), by and through its undersigned counsel, brings this civil action
against Defendant Anita Kelly Manfred (Manfred) trading and doing business as BLing by

1. This is an action for: (1) copyright infringement as prohibited by 17 U.S.C
501, et seq.; (2) trademark infringement and related acts of unfair competition acts under the
Trademark Act of 1946, as amended (The Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1051, et seq.), 15 U.S.C.
1114(1)(a), and common law; (3) unfair competition ; (4) initial interest confusion as prohibited
by the Lanham Act 43(a), 15 U.S.C. 1125(a); (5) dilution as prohibited by the Lanham Act,
43(c), 15 U.S.C. 1125(c), and the Pennsylvania Trademark Law, 54 Pa. Stat. 1124; (6)

Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 1 of 15

Parties
2. Sabika is a company organized and existing under the laws of Pennsylvania,
having a place of business at 2 Robinson Plaza, Suite 250, Pittsburgh, PA 15205. Sabika
designs, markets and sells jewelry and fashion accessories in many states including the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
3. Upon information and belief, Defendant Anita Kelly Manfred, trading and doing
business as BLing by Anita, markets and sells jewelry, inter alia on a Facebook page, with an
address at 1331 Cedar Boulevard, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15228-1013. In 2010 and 2011,
Manfred was a Sabika consultant and, in that capacity, had access to Sabika information and
products.
Jurisdiction and Venue
4. This Court has subject matter jurisdiction over this action pursuant to 15 U.S.C.
1121 and 28 U.S.C. 1331, 1338, and 1367. Jurisdiction over causes of action arising from
violation of Pennsylvania statutory and common law is conferred on this Court under 28 U.S.C.
1338(b) because these claims are joined with substantial and related claims under federal
trademark and copyright laws.
5. Venue is proper in this district under 28 U.S.C. 1391 because a substantial part
of the events giving rise to these claims and Sabikas injury occurred in this District.
FACTUAL BACKGROUND
I. Sabika
6. Sabika is a family business founded in Pittsburgh in 2001 that has been an
immediate and continuing success story in its development of multiple jewelry lines, many
copyrighted jewelry products, a unique selling method and its ability to develop hundreds of
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 2 of 15
3

relationships with consultants who would otherwise not be working. Over the past twelve years,
Sabika has garnered a reputation for selling unique, high-quality jewelry products. To create this
success Sabika has created a selling method which sets up separate business opportunities for
hundreds of consultants throughout 47 states, heavily concentrated in Pennsylvania, Virginia,
and West Virginia.
7. Sabikas selling methods require the commitment of hundreds of consultants who
enter into Agreements with Sabika (Exhibit 1 hereto is a copy of the Agreement signed by
Manfred) and commit to developing hostess parties on a regular basis to enhance the customer
lists of Sabika. Consultants are amply rewarded for their efforts and the business has grown
greatly over the last twelve years.
8. Under the consultancy relationship, consultants are required to faithfully,
professionally, and to the best of their ability perform their consulting duties and maintain the
highest standards of integrity, honesty, responsibility, and professionalism. Further, in an effort
to maintain the stability and success of Sabikas sales model, consultants shall not distribute or
otherwise make available to any company, person or other entity operating in the home party
network business the Marketing Materials or other sales tools or procedures of [Sabika].
Consultants are also required to protect the companys trademarks and trade name by obtaining
the companys written permission prior to any use in any advertising or literature other than the
Marketing Materials. In addition, when a consultants affiliation with Sabika terminates, the
consultant shall immediately return any property of the Company in Consultants possession
including all Company manuals and training materials.
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 3 of 15

9. The Sabika program and sales model, which produce unique, copyrighted, and
trademarked jewelry items for sale, are a direct result of the leadership and decades-long efforts
of the family members who created Sabika.
10. Sabika is the owner of various copyright registrations (see Exhibit 2, list of
copyright registrations), multiple copyright applications, and trademarks for Sabika which is a
well-known trademark in the United States.
II. Sabikas Copyrighted Jewelry
11. As seen in Exhibit 2, Sabika has approximately 35 copyright registrations to its
various lines of jewelry and many more copyright applications. During every year of its
existence, Sabika has created new product lines and catalogs to enhance its reputation. In
particular, Sabika has obtained a United States copyright registration for its Wine and Dine Fun
Choker, CM 862CK, registration number VA1-836-897, effective September 20, 2012 (see
Exhibit 3 hereto).
III. Sabikas Trademarks
12. Sabika has five trademark registrations (see Exhibit 4 hereto, which includes
registrations 4,189,055; 4,087,637; 4,087,021; 4,077,226; and 3,731,881) indicating protection of
the Sabika trademark for use dating back to August 2000. These registrations cover the Sabika
name as well as other trademarks and a unique heart design used by Sabika.
13. Those who improperly use Sabikas products to develop and sell their own
imitation products, while at the same time claiming that their products are substantially similar to
or in fact are identical to Sabika products, repeatedly violate Sabikas trademark
registrations.

IV. Defendants Conduct
14. Defendant Manfred was a consultant for Sabika in 2010-2011. On information
and belief, after leaving Sabika, Manfred opened her own jewelry business with her sister and
started selling her products through open houses by moving into home parties with hostesses.
On information and belief, when a prospective customer calls to order jewelry from Manfred, she
uses and refers to products found in Sabika catalogs. In fact, it is Plaintiffs understanding that
Manfred routinely discusses her products in relation to Sabikas products. On information and
belief, Manfred tells customers that she works with the same suppliers as Sabika, and that she
has worked for more than a year cultivating those relationships. On information and belief, as
part of her sales pitch, Manfred routinely states that her products are Sabika at half the cost.
15. Ms. Manfred uses the company name BLing by Anita. She has previously been
notified of her improper usage of the jewelry, copyrights and trademarks of Sabika and has
denied any responsibility through her counsel. She lists her Facebook page for her competing
product sales at www.facebook.com/pages/Bling-Swarovski-Crystal-Jewelry/294619047216262.
16. In particular, Defendant Manfred sells the Sabika copyrighted piece Wine and
Dine, Registration No. VA1836-897 (see Exhibit 3 hereto), without Sabikas authorization.
Defendant also sells other pieces separately under copyright application soon to be registered.
COUNT 1
(COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT)
17. Sabika realleges and incorporates by reference paragraphs 1 through 16 of this
Complaint.
18. Defendants sale of jewelry products, which directly copy designs for which
Sabika owns a copyright registration, is in violation of 17 U.S.C. 106. As a result, Sabika is
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 5 of 15
6

entitled to injunctive relief pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 502 and is also entitled to damages (including
statutory damages), profits, costs, and attorneys fees pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 502 and 505.
19. Defendant has illegally reproduced the Sabika jewelry, distributed it to the public,
displayed it to the public and/or induced or supervised others into engaging in such infringing
conduct and will continue to do so in the future.
20. By violating the exclusive rights granted by copyright to Sabika, Defendants
conduct has and will continue to cause Sabika irreparable harm.
21. Defendants infringement of Sabikas copyrighted jewelry was willful and in
knowing disregard of Sabikas copyright rights.
COUNT 2
(FEDERAL AND COMMON LAW
TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT AND UNFAIR COMPETITION)

22. Sabika realleges and incorporates by reference paragraphs 1 through 21 of this
Complaint.
23. Without the consent of Sabika, Defendant is using in commerce Sabikas
trademarks and trade names in connection with the sale, offering for sale, distribution or
advertising of Defendants jewelry on or in connection with which such use is likely to cause
confusion, or to cause mistake or to deceive in violation of 15 U.S.C. 1114(1)(a) and common
law.
24. Without the consent of Sabika, Defendant is using and imitating Sabika
trademarks, using them in commerce upon or in connection with the sale, offering for sale,
distribution or advertising of goods or services on or in connection with which such use is likely
to cause confusion, or to cause mistake, or to deceive in violation of 15 U.S.C. 1114(1)(a) and
common law.
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 6 of 15
7

25. On information and belief, Defendant is using in commerce (a) words, terms,
names, symbols, devices and combinations thereof, (b) a false designation of origin, a false or
misleading description of facts, and (c) false and misleading representations of fact, all of which
are likely to cause confusion, or to cause mistake, or to deceive as to the affiliation, connection,
or association of Defendant with Sabika, or as to the origin, sponsorship, or approval of
Defendants jewelry, or commercial activities by Sabika in violation of 15 U.S.C. 1125 et seq.
and common law.
26. Defendants use of these terms and indicia infringes and will continue to infringe
Sabikas federal and common law rights in the Sabika trademarks. Defendant committed the
foregoing acts with full knowledge of Sabikas federal and common law trademark rights in the
Sabika trademarks. Her commission of such acts, with full knowledge of Sabikas rights,
constitutes willful violations of 15 U.S.C. 1114 and common law.
27. Defendant has been and is continuing to attempt to trade on valuable goodwill
associated with Sabikas trademarks.
28. Defendants acts have irreparably damaged, and unless enjoined by this Court,
will continue to irreparably damage, Sabika by causing loss of sales, profits, business, reputation,
goodwill and other losses, many of which are virtually impossible to calculate. An award of
monetary damages alone cannot fully compensate Sabika for its injuries, and plaintiff lacks an
adequate remedy at law.
COUNT 3
(UNFAIR COMPETITION)

29. Sabika realleges and incorporates by reference paragraphs 1 through 28 of this
Complaint.
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 7 of 15
8

30. Defendants manufacture, advertising, sale and/or distribution in interstate
commerce of imitation jewelry, and use of the Sabika trademarks, are likely to cause confusion,
mistake and deception in the marketplace for such products as to the source and authority for
offering such products and as to the quality of such products. Potential and actual consumers are
likely to believe, and likely to be deceived into believing, that the products offered by Defendant
are approved, authorized and/or licensed by Sabika.
31. Defendants use of her Facebook website to advertise her imitation jewelry is
likely to cause confusion, mistake and deception in the marketplace as to the source and
authority for offering such products and as to the quality of such products. Potential and actual
consumers are likely to believe, and are likely to be deceived into believing, that the products
offered by Defendant are approved, authorized and/or licensed by Sabika. Defendant is therefore
unnecessarily creating confusion between Sabikas goods and her imitation goods.
32. Upon information and belief, the intended acts described above reflect
Defendants scheme by which she, without authority, consent or privilege, intends to imitate or
pass off her goods as Sabika products, or as goods for which Defendant has received Sabikas
sponsorship or approval. Defendants intentional conduct further creates the impression that
Sabika is responsible or accountable for the quality of the goods sold or offered for sale by
Defendant. Defendants conduct also harms the value of Sabikas jewelry products and
reputation for jewelry products of the highest quality, a value acquired by Sabika as a result of
Sabikas substantial expenditure of money, effort and service to customers. Through its actions,
Defendant is inducing the purchase of imitation jewelry and is thereby obtaining benefits
properly belonging to Sabika.
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 8 of 15
9

33. Defendants conduct as described above constitutes unfair competition in
violation of the common law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
34. Defendant committed the acts described with notice of Sabikas rights and with
the intent to cause confusion, mistake and deception on the part of the consuming public.
35. Defendants conduct was and continues to be willful and knowing.
36. Defendants acts have irreparably damaged, and unless enjoined by this Court,
will continue to irreparably damage Sabika by causing loss of sales, profits, business, reputation,
goodwill, and other losses, many of which are virtually impossible to calculate. An award of
monetary damages alone cannot fully compensate Sabika for its injuries and, accordingly, Sabika
lacks an adequate remedy at law.
COUNT 4
(INITIAL INTEREST CONFUSION)

37. Sabika realleges and incorporates by reference paragraphs 1 through 36 of this
Complaint.
38. Defendants use of the Sabika copyrights and trademarks constitutes false and
deceptive representations of Sabikas copyrights, trademarks, and jewelry in that the use of
Sabikas trademarks, copyrights, and jewelry are designed to create initial interest in Defendants
products through the misappropriation of Sabikas goodwill and jewelry designs.
39. Defendants use and advertisement of her imitation Sabika products constitutes false
and deceptive representations in that such use is designed to create initial interest in the
Defendants products through the misappropriation of Sabikas goodwill and jewelry designs.
40. Defendants false and deceptive products and acts are likely to cause confusion or
mistake, or to deceive consumers into believing, that there is an affiliation or close association
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 9 of 15
10

between Defendant and Sabika. Defendants actions violate section 43(a) of the Lanham Act, 15
U.S.C. 1125(a).
41. Defendants actions are willful, knowing and intentional, and are undertaken with
the express purpose of harming Sabika.
42. Sabika has been and is likely to continue to be damaged in an undetermined
amount. Sabika has been and is likely to continue to be irreparably harmed by Defendants
misleading and deceptive misrepresentations of affiliation and association with Sabika, for which
there is no adequate remedy at law.
COUNT 5
(DILUTION)

43. Sabika realleges and incorporates by reference paragraphs 1 through 42 of this
Complaint.
44. For many years, Sabika has created substantial goodwill as a well-respected and
famous brand of jewelry and accessories in the United States in general and the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania in particular. Sabika products sold under the Sabika trademarks are uniquely
designed and are among the most well-known brands of mid-priced costumed jewelry in the
United States. The Sabika trademarks, Sabika method, and Sabika trade dresses in its unique
designs have been used widely, exclusively and for a long duration in association with Sabika,
such that such marks and trade dresses have become and are now distinctive and famous.
45. Despite knowledge of Sabikas rights in and to the Sabika trademarks, trade
dresses, and designs, Defendant is now using the Sabika name, trademark, and designs in
association with her imitation jewelry, and her imitation jewelry is nearly identical to the Sabika
trade dresses and designs protected by the Sabika name.
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 10 of 15
11

46. Despite knowledge of Sabikas rights in and to the trademarks, trade dress, and
designs, Defendant now advertises her imitation jewelry and designs in such a way as to cause
dilution of the distinctive quality of Sabikas famous name, trademark, and trade dresses.
47. Defendants use of the Sabika trademarks and sale of her imitation jewelry has
lessened and will lessen the capacity of Sabikas famous trademarks, trade dresses, and designs
to identify and distinguish Sabikas products.
48. Defendant has willfully intended to trade on Sabikas reputation and to cause
dilution of Sabikas famous trademarks, trade dresses, name, and designs.
49. Defendants acts constitute a violation of 43(c) of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C.
1125(c), and the Pennsylvania Trademark Law, 54 Pa. Stat. 1124.
50. By reason of and as a direct result of these acts of dilution by Defendant, Sabika
has suffered and will continue to suffer great irreparable damage, the full extent of which is
currently unknown.
COUNT 6
(BREACH OF CONTRACT)

51. Sabika realleges and incorporates by reference paragraphs 1 through 50 of this
Complaint.
52. Defendant Manfred entered into a consultancy relationship with Sabika in 2010
which was terminated in 2011. Defendant is required, under the Consultant Agreement that she
signed, not to distribute or otherwise make available Sabikas Marketing Materials or other sales
tools or procedures to any company, person, or other entity operating in the home party or
network business (see Exhibit 1 at 12).
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 11 of 15
12

53. Furthermore, Defendant was required to protect Sabikas trademarks and trade
names by obtaining the companys written permission prior to any use in any advertising or
literature other than the Marketing Materials.
54. On information and belief, these requirements of trust and acts in good faith were
not only extant during the consultancy relationship, but also thereafter.
55. Upon information and belief, and in direct contravention of her prior relationship
with Sabika, Defendant has breached the Consultant Agreement by establishing and operating a
separate entity that uses the information that she obtained from Sabika following the termination
of her relationship with Sabika, as well as by distributing such information for personal gain in
breach of her Consultant Agreement.
56. Upon information and belief, contrary to protecting Sabikas trademarks and trade
name, Defendant has intentionally used those trademarks and that trade name to enhance a
personal business relationship having nothing to do with Sabika but trading on the same goodwill
of Sabika to Sabikas detriment. Such contractual breaches have caused substantial harm to
Sabika and its programs with its consultants. By reasons of these acts Sabika has suffered and
will continue to suffer great and irreparable damage, the full extent of which is currently
unknown.
COUNT 7
(UNJUST ENRICHMENT)

57. Sabika realleges and incorporates by reference paragraphs 1 through 56 of this
Complaint.
58. Defendants distribution and sale of jewelry that is substantially the same as
Sabika, and her use of Sabikas goodwill and substantial fame, have improperly enriched
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 12 of 15
13

Defendant, to the detriment to Sabika. This has been done unjustly and without any support. On
information and belief, Defendant has undertaken such actions in substantial and willful
disregard of such rights of Sabika, solely to play on the value of the Sabika trademarks, name,
and designs, which were all developed by Sabika.
59. By reason of and as a direct result of these acts of unjust enrichment by
Defendant, Sabika has suffered and will continue to suffer great and irreparable damage, the full
extent of which is currently unknown.
60. Defendants retention of the benefits that she has wrongfully secured through the
misuse of Sabikas trademarks, name, designs, goodwill, and fame, without payment to Sabika,
is unconscionable.
PRAYER FOR RELIEF
WHEREFORE, Sabika requests that this Court:
(a) enter an order preliminarily and permanently enjoining Defendant from continued
acts of copyright infringement, trademark infringement, initial interest confusion, unfair
competition, dilution and from further violations of any of the federal and state laws cited herein;
(b) order the immediate destruction of all imitation jewelry in Defendants possession
or in the possession of any person selling or distributing the imitation jewelry which are the
subject of a violation of 15 U.S.C. 1114 or 1125 or any of the state laws herein;
(c) award to Sabika the Defendants profits from the sale of her jewelry intended to
imitate and substantially take away from the goodwill of Sabika;
(d) award damages adequate to compensate Sabika for Defendants acts of copyright
infringement, trademark infringement, unfair competition, dilution and violations of the federal
Case 2:13-cv-00091-TFM Document 1 Filed 01/16/13 Page 13 of 15
14

and state laws cited here, and a proper amount where applicable of statutory punitive and
exemplary damages;
(e) treble such damages and profits pursuant to 15 U.S.C. 1117;
(f) assess interest upon damages so computed, including prejudgment interest;
(g) award Sabika its attorneys fees, costs and expenses in this action; and
(h) order such other relief as the Court deems necessary and proper.
DEMAND FOR TRIAL BY JURY
Pursuant to Rule 38(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Plaintiff demands a trial
by jury of all issues properly triable to a jury in this case.
