SAN JOSE, Calif. — LELO has filed a counterclaim lawsuit against Standard Innovation Corporation at the federal court in Canada asserting that all patent claims on the We-Vibe product line are invalid, void and of no force and effect.

The move comes in response to an initial lawsuit launched against LELO Inc., the U.S. division of the renowned Swedish manufacturer, which claims the Tiani Couples’ Massager infringes on Standard Innovation Corporation’s intellectual property in reference to the We-Vibe product line.

LELO has previously stated that it will strongly defend its right to manufacture and market its products in the U.S. and Canada. While the case has no potential bearing on other global markets, LELO has stated this defense is integral to the protection of its intellectual property.

The latest development also comes on the heels of LELO’s recent announcement on Aug. 9, of the successful issuance of U.S. design patent number D665094 for its award-winning Tiani Couples’ Massager.

Retailers or distributors that have any further questions or concerns may email usa@lelo.com. For more information on LELO’s latest products, visit LELO.com.
