Samsung Sued Over Milk Music App
Ashley Allen / 5 years ago
Samsung have been hit with a lawsuit, over its Milk Music app, from multimedia company Milk Studios. The lawsuit, filed on Monday at the US District Court of the Southern District or New York, alleges that Samsung’s Milk Music has “intentionally, wilfully and knowingly” violated Milk Studio’s trademark.
Milk Studios, formed 15 years ago with offices in New York and Los Angeles, has a history with Samsung, having engaged in 18 unique partnerships with them, according to the lawsuit. Milk Studios formally requested that Samsung stop using the ‘Milk’ name back in March when the app was released for Samsung’s Android platforms, but Samsung refused. Samsung last week released a second video app, carrying a similar name, Milk Video.
Milk Studios is seeking an undisclosed amount of damages. Samsung is yet to comment on the lawsuit.
