Virgin America v. Adrants Publishing, No. 3:09-cv-00337-BZ (N.D. Cal. filed Jan. 26, 2009).
Status: Pending.

In response to a fake advertisement for airline Virgin America that appeared on website, Virgin brought a six-count complaint alleging, among other things, trademark infringement and defamation. A disclaimer was initially placed on the posting, but was later removed. The fake advertisement featured a photo of the crash of US Airways flight 1549 into the Hudson River and included the caption: “The Hudson Crash: Just One More Reason to Fly Virgin.”
