Monsoon filed a claim for infringement of design rights over women's and children's clothing, including two skirts, a tropical floral swimsuit, a child's striped scarf and girls' corduroy trousers. In May 2004, Primark paid Monsoon £23,000 in a settlement relating to clothing that Monsoon said were copies of its designs.
