The Order was passed by the Single bench of Justice Pratibha M Singh. 

Justice Pratibha M Singh vide her restraining order has directed  owners of www.clubfactory.com  to abstain from  manufacturing, selling, offering for sale directly or indirectly any goods including face masks etc., bearing the registered marks of Louis Vuitton on its portal or any other portal run by them. 

The Court also directed the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and Ministry of Electronic and Information Technology (MeiTY) to issue instructions to all internet service providers to block the website www.clubfactory.com so that the link of the same cannot be accessed even through VPN or other platforms.  The matter arose upon the case of the Plaintiff wherein it was contented that the defendants i.e. 'Club Factory' through its website were indulging in the sale of unauthorized products having its marks on the website, thereby violating rights in Louis Vuitton mark and various other device marks.

An application was filed by Defendants' counsels seeking discharge in the matter as after being blocked by the Indian Government, they had stopped getting instructions in the matter.
