Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Moshi (http://www.moshimonde.com), creator of extraordinary products for enhancing the mobile lifestyle, today announced it has settled three lawsuits over patent-infringing copies of its iVisor touchscreen protector product line.
Launched in 2010 with over 3 million units sold to date, the iVisor set the standard for durable, washable, easy-to-install and bubble-free screen protectors for mobile devices. The iVisor is currently available for iPhone, iPad, and a variety of popular Android-based smartphones.
Permanent injunctions were entered by the United States District Court for the District of Nevada against mobile accessory manufacturers PhoneDevil Ltd. and Shenzhen Membrane Precise Electron Ltd. prohibiting the sale, offer for sale, import, or use of any product within the scope of Moshi’s U.S. Patent No. 8,044,942. In addition to obeying the permanent injunctions, PhoneDevil Ltd. paid Moshi a confidential amount to settle the dispute, while Shenzhen Membrane Precise Electron Ltd. was required to make a financial payment pursuant to a sanctions order by the Court.
In an earlier case in the Northern District of California, accessory manufacturer Splash Products LLC also agreed to exit the market and pay Moshi a confidential amount to settle their dispute.
“Moshi has invested considerable time and resources developing its iVisor line of premium touchscreen protector products. We are committed to protecting the interests of Moshi’s customers by vigorously enforcing the patent rights covering Moshi’s offerings,” said Moshi’s outside legal counsel, David Bloch of Winston & Strawn LLP.
These settlements resolve three lawsuits, Aevoe Corp. (d.b.a. Moshi) v. PhoneDevil Ltd. (d.b.a. MediaDevil), filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada (Case No. 12-cv-00514); Aevoe Corp. (d.b.a. Moshi) v. Shenzhen Membrane Precise Electron Ltd., filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada (Case No. 2:12-CV-00054); and Aevoe Corp. (d.b.a. Moshi) v. Splash Products LLC, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California (Case No. 11-CV-06165). The patent-at-suit is U.S. Patent No. 8,044,942 titled “Touch screen protector.” All three suits were settled in Q2 of 2012.
