Last month, National Tobacco Company and its sister company North Atlantic Operating Company (NAOC) won a preliminary injunction against AAA Traders, Inc., after finding the company bought and sold at least 1,552 cartons of counterfeit Zig-Zag® Orange cigarette papers. The injunction prevents AAA from manufacturing, buying or marketing any counterfeit Zig-Zag or other NAOC products.
The ruling from Judge Michael L. Brown of the U.S. District Court in Atlanta comes after NAOC filed suit against AAA alleging trademark and copyright infringement, among other violations. The suit claims AAA purchased the counterfeit products from unauthorized sellers at prices dramatically below market standards. Judge Brown ruled the counterfeit products caused irreparable harm to NAOC, rendering them unable to control the quality and safety of the products.
