In one of the first cases of its kind in Canada, Louis Vuitton is taking legal action against an Etobicoke flea market over its tenants' counterfeit goods.

The multinational design firm is seeking damages against Dr. Flea's Flea Market for negligence, copyright infringement and vicarious liability.

Although some countries, such as the United States, recognize that a landlord can be responsible for tenants' infringement, this concept has not yet developed in Canadian law.
