By Andrew Chung NEW YORK (Reuters) – Finnish mobile games maker Rovio, which owns the globally successful Angry Birds brand, is suing two North American companies for selling allegedly counterfeit trinkets based on its famous game. Rovio filed suit in Manhattan federal court on Thursday against vending firms Allstar Vending of Canada and California-based Toy Amazon claiming it was the victim of unscrupulous individuals trying to capitalize on Angry Birds popularity. Rovio accused the companies of selling bracelets, key chains, charms, as well as artwork and textiles. Rovio is asking the court for $2 million in damages for each counterfeit item sold and a halt to their distribution.
