Whereas, Flyp has designed, advertised, promoted, purchased, offered for sale and/or sold certain jeanswear products bearing a design (the "Accused Design") that RCRV alleges infringes its rights in and to the INVERTED FLEUR-DE-LIS DESIGN Trademark (the "Accused Products"), photographs of the Accused Products being attached to this Order as Exhibit B, and has sold such products to defendant rue21, Inc.;
