Montana clothing company All Season All Terrain (ASAT) Outdoors is suing New York-based fashion company Supreme for copyright infringement after Supreme sold clothing printed with a copyrighted camouflage design, according to court documents.

Stevensville based ASAT Outdoors filed the suit on Nov. 11 in New York District Court.

The Montana company claims to have owned the copyright on a camouflage design since it was created in 1985.
