NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Moroccanoil® group of companies ("Moroccanoil") and Marc Anthony Cosmetics, Inc. ("Marc Anthony") have resolved all disputes, which included litigation in the United States District Court for the Central District of California and the Federal Court of Canada, and proceedings in international trademark offices. Moroccanoil sued Marc Anthony for trademark and trade dress infringement, passing off and unfair competition in relation to Marc Anthony's Oil of Morocco argan oil products. Marc Anthony challenged Moroccanoil's trademark registrations in Canada, the United States and abroad. The disputes have been settled through a confidential global settlement. All proceedings between the parties will be discontinued. The parties have expressed satisfaction with the resolution, which they believe will protect their respective intellectual property, commercial interests and marketing goals.
A story of success, an impulse for innovation and a relentless pursuit of simple, high-performing oil-infused beauty products fashioned an iconic brand: Moroccanoil. As the pioneer of oil-infused hair care, our original Moroccanoil Treatment created the worldwide buzz on argan oil and paved the way for an extensive line of premium oil-infused hair care products to address the needs of all hair types. By popular demand, Moroccanoil has since continued to innovate and extend the line to include Moroccanoil Body™, a luxurious oil-infused collection inspired by the sea, sand, breeze and scents of the Mediterranean. Featuring proprietary formulas that rejuvenate and replenish, Moroccanoil Body™ leaves skin nourished, naturally radiant and irresistibly beautiful. Born within the last decade, Moroccanoil is available in over 60 countries worldwide. Moroccanoil products are available at fine salons, spas and now online.
