§ 1125. Remedies
(a) General rule.--Any owner of a mark registered under this chapter may proceed by suit to enjoin the manufacture, use, display or sale of any counterfeits or imitations thereof, and any court of competent jurisdiction may grant injunctions to restrain such manufacture, use, display or sale as may be by the court deemed just and reasonable, and may, except as provided in section 1123 (relating to infringement), require the defendants to pay to such owner all profits derived from and all damages suffered by reason of such wrongful manufacture, use, display or sale, and such court may also order that any such counterfeits or imitations in the possession or under the control of any defendant in such case be delivered to an officer of the court or to the complainant to be destroyed. The court, in its discretion, may enter judgment for an amount not to exceed three times such profits and damages and/or reasonable attorney fees of the prevailing party in such cases where the court finds the other party committed such wrongful acts with knowledge or in bad faith or otherwise as according to the circumstances of the case.
(b) Exception.--No owner of such a mark shall have such right of injunction against an advertising agency, publisher of newspapers, magazines or other advertising media accepting authorization for the reproduction or copy of any such mark innocently and in good faith in the usual course of business.
(c) Criminal prosecutions unaffected.--The enumeration of any right or remedy in this chapter shall not affect the right of a registrant to prosecute under Title 18 (relating to crimes and offenses).
