On Monday, an eight-person jury in Santa Ana, Calif., awarded the famous scowling feline’s company $710,001 in damages in a copyright infringement case, according to court documents obtained by The Washington Post.

The brand signed with the Grenade beverage company for a “Grumpy Cat Grumpuccino” iced coffee line in 2013, which later used the cat’s congenital sourpuss expression for other products.
