fusionbrands wins poachpod infringement case in UK; cases to start in Australia and New Zealand
March 08 2011
fusionbrands, the creator of the poachpod silicone egg poacher, has won a case in the UK against a retailer and its supplier for intellectual property infringement.
The highly-successful floating poacher is distributed in the UK by JWP.
The federal suit charged the retailer and supplier with patent infringement and advertising injuries for selling and advertising counterfeit products and for unlawfully using the poachpod® trademark.
“We will not tolerate knock-offs and imitations of any of our products or our trade names by anyone,” commented fusionbrands co-founder Kraigh Stewart. “We will aggressively pursue infringers,” he added.
An immediate commercial success, the patented poachpod has won multiple national and international design awards.
It's understood that the amount of the settlement it is substantially more than the retailer and supplier profited from the sale of the infringing goods.
