The 32-year-old designer has been awarded $90 million USD in damages by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in the case against counterfeiters and cybersquatters. According to other sources, 459 different domain names for websites advertising fake Alexander Wang handbags, footwear, apparel, and accessories have been locked and transferred to Alexander Wang Inc. Dennis Wang, chief principal officer of Alexander Wang Inc states the following
"The company takes its intellectual property rights very seriously. Protecting our brand requires maintaining constant vigilance on a global scale as well as taking proactive measures such as sending cease and desist orders directly to domestic and foreign counterfeiters as well as contacting web site servers that host counterfeit sites. The creativity and originality of our designs are the foundation upon which the company is based.
Since the launch of the brand in 2005, we have collectively devoted an incalculable amount of resources — time, money, and hard work — toward creating a trademark that is distinctive and uniquely our own. I am very pleased that the court recognized this and decided in our favor."
