A federal jury in Atlanta awarded more than $ 1 million to a company marketing simulated granite and stainless steel laminates in trademark infringement litigation, including attorney fees of $ 260,000.

The case, which focused on the defendant's use of the terms "Instant Granite" and "Instant Stainless" in its online marketing, arose after the parties reached a settlement in an earlier case in which plaintiff Instant One Media Inc. had paid $ 175,000 for the settlement of trademark claims.
