Respecting Creativity and Fighting Copies

Over the years, molo has stopped parties from selling copies of its products. These parties have acknowledged molo’s authorship and intellectual property rights by signing agreements to cease and desist the sale and marketing of copies. Copying is a serious offence that damages investments made by artists and the design community. molo will continue to defend its intellectual property, preserve its creativity and uphold the value of molo products for its customers and partners.

(September 2020) - MOLO ANNOUNCES A SUCCESSFUL LEGAL ACTION AGAINST EXHIBO S.P.A. FOR INFRINGEMENT OF MOLO'S COPYRIGHT BY UNAUTHORIZED MARKETING AND SELLING OF STOOLS, BENCHES, LOUNGERS AND TABLE COPIES BRANDED AS "PAPIRHO"

Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen began working on flexible architecture in 2001 and, by 2006, had developed a modular flexible seating system for commercial production. softseating has since met with critical and commercial success. softseating is in the permanent collections of the MoMA, the Cooper Hewitt, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and is regularly used by brands like Hermès, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Apple, Rolex, Jaguar Land Rover and others.

molo announces a successful legal action against Exhibo S.p.A. for infringement of molo’s copyright by unauthorized marketing and selling of stools, benches, loungers, and tables branded as “Papirho.” The Court of Milan issued a judicial order that Exhibo infringed on molo’s copyright. The judicial order also granted the seizure of the infringing products, ordered Exhibo to cease and desist any production, import, advertising, and commercialization of the infringing products, and fixed a penalty for any violation.

“Stephanie and I have created flexible furniture, lighting, partitions, glassware, and accessories – all focusing on design and quality. We are committed to defending our intellectual property and preserving our creativity to uphold value to our customers and partners,” said Todd MacAllen. “With support from our global partners, we will continue to survey the global marketplace to ensure molo’s intellectual property is protected.”
