(KSL News) Stores are usually excited about high sales during the holiday season, but for one Utah company those sales landed them in court.

The Orem company HobbyTron.com sold thousands of toy helicopters last Christmas, but the company that sold them those helicopters sued for copyright infringment, saying the company started selling knock-off toys in order to meet demand.

The Deseret Morning News reports the original company was tipped off when they started getting complaints about toys that weren't theirs.

HobbyTron admitted fault in the case and has agreed to pay a $200,000 settlement.
