MGM and Warner Bros. Sued by Motorcycle Apparel Co. for Trademark Infringement

A motorcycle apparel and accessories company filed a lawsuit alleging trademark infringement Friday in Los Angeles against Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Warner Bros. Entertainment, claiming the studios used a knockoff of one of the company’s bomber jackets in a movie.

Deus Ex Machina, which has a store in Venice, alleges that in the 2019 teen drama “The Sun Is Also a Star,” an actress wears a “gaudy and inferior” bomber-style jacket with the words “Deus Ex Machina” inscribed in the back in large letters, but the jacket is not a product of the company, according to the Los Angeles federal court filing.

Representatives of the studios could not be reached for comment after regular business hours.
