The 11th Civil Court of Brasília1 dismissed a copyright infringement lawsuit filed against Lojas Marisa by the artist Jacenyldo Fernandes dos Santos. The plaintiff claimed copyright infringement as a result of the unauthorized use of the expression “No Bad Days” in products marketed by Marisa.
The defendant argued that this expression would be of common use, and that the word fonts, as well as the color palette used, would not be original.
The court held that the form the plaintiff used the expression “No bad days” would be very similar to the forms previously adopted by third parties. Therefore, there would be no originality in Jacenyldo’s work to justify copyright protection.
