In Gucci America, Inc. v. Laurette Co. No. 1:2008cv05065 (S.D.N.Y.), the luxury goods manufacturer succeeded in shutting down a Web site called "" through which the defendants sold counterfeit Gucci handbags. In fact, the defendants consented to the entry of judgment and admitted liability for trademark infringement. In a subsequently filed action, Gucci America, Inc. v. Frontline Processing Corp., 1:2009cv06925 (S.D.N.Y.) the manufacturer sought to hold firms that provided credit card processing services to the operators of site liable for trademark infringement as well. On June 23, the court in Gucci v. Frontline refused to dismiss Gucci’s complaint, finding that the two firms that processed credit card payments for transactions consummated on the site, as well as the company that brought the Web site operator and the processing firms together, may be liable for contributory trademark infringement.
