Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 20, 2016
Lululemon is the only remaining defendant in patent litigation brought by Blackbird Technologies concerning sports bra technology.
In October 2015, Blackbird Technologies filed lawsuits against Lululemon Athletica, Inc. (15-cv-00930), Asics America Corporation (15-cv-00929), Swoob, Inc. (15-cv-00932) and Zoot Sports, Inc. (15-cv-00933) in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on United States Patent No. 7,867,058. The cases concern a sports bra with an innovative storage compartment. Blackbird Technologies has settled with Asics, Swoob and Zoot, and only Lululemon remains in the suit.
“In less than five months, Blackbird Technologies was able to resolve almost all cases related to this patent,” said Wendy Verlander, President and CEO of Blackbird Technologies. “The inventor of this award-winning technology had tried for years to see value from this innovative sports bra patent, first trying to manufacture it, then license it and then litigate it. All proved futile. We are very pleased that she was finally able to see a return on her significant investment of time and money.”
“Putting Blackbird’s experience and muscle behind this patent has made all the difference. That is really one of the strengths of our business,” added Chris Freeman, Blackbird Technologies’ VP and Head of Litigation. “It has been very gratifying to become a go-to option for inventors and small businesses, many of which thought they had no options.”
