Representatives of WWE legal swept through the Wrestlecon vendors room this afternoon, seizing “bootlegged” material such as DVDs, t-shirts, etc. that were being sold by some of the vendors who had come into town to sell at the event.
Those who had material seized were given a court date to appear and try to argue their case as to why the material should be returned…and risk paying damages. WWE took personal information of those who were selling materials.
WWE came armed with a massive list of their copyrights and trademarks to show they were being infringed upon.
So, even on the biggest day of the year, where they are bound to make millions, WWE was still going after anyone they thought was infringing on their copyrights.
