Popular case brand CASETiFY is facing a copyright infringement lawsuit from DBrand and JerryRigEverything over its “Inside Out” collection of phone cases. The lawsuit alleges that CASETiFY blatantly copied DBrand’s teardown-skin designs, which were created in collaboration with JerryRigEverything.
In 2019, DBrand partnered with JerryRigEverything, a popular YouTuber known for his durability tests and teardown videos, to create a series of teardown-skin cases. These cases feature a unique design that exposes the internal components of the phone, giving users a glimpse of the intricate workings of their devices.
What are the allegations?
DBrand claims that CASETiFY directly copied its teardown-skin designs, including the intricate details and even the easter eggs that were intentionally embedded in the designs. The lawsuit cites 117 specific instances of copyright infringement.
JerryRigEverything has expressed his disappointment in CASETiFY’s actions, stating that it took the team over 10,000 hours to create the original teardown-skin designs. He also highlighted the effort that went into making the designs as accurate as possible, down to the smallest details.
CASETiFY has yet to release an official statement regarding the lawsuit. However, the company has removed the “Inside Out” collection from its website.
The copyright infringement lawsuit could have significant implications for CASETiFY. If DBrand is successful in its claims, CASETiFY could face substantial damages. Additionally, the lawsuit could damage CASETiFY’s reputation and brand.
The copyright infringement lawsuit between DBrand, JerryRigEverything, and CASETiFY is still in its early stages. It remains to be seen what the outcome of the lawsuit will be. However, the allegations have already cast a shadow over CASETiFY and could have a lasting impact on the company’s reputation.
