Harley-Davidson filed a complaint with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on Aug. 11 against a group of Chinese counterfeiters who are allegedly selling unauthorized versions of its goods online, according to World Intellectual Property Review.

The defendants, named by Harley-Davidson as an "interrelated group of counterfeiters," are accused of selling motorcycle parts, apparel, jewelry and other goods "using counterfeit versions of Harley-Davidson's federally registered trademarks."

Harley-Davidson is seeking injunctive relief, a transfer of infringing domain names, a transfer of profits derived from the infringing products, $2 million for "each and every use of the Harley-Davidson trademarks" and attorneys' fees.
