OTTAWA, Ontario — Standard Innovation is informing We-Vibe 3 distributors and retailers that it stands behind its line of products and channel partners.

On April 2, Standard Innovation was named in a U.S. civil action, filed by LELO alleging that a component of the We-Vibe 3 charging mechanism infringes on a LELO-owned U.S. patent.

“This lawsuit is clearly in retaliation for suits brought by Standard Innovation alleging that LELO’s products infringe Standard Innovation’s patent covering the We-Vibe products,” Standard Innovation CEO Danny Osadca said. “We are deeply disappointed by recent actions LELO has taken to disrupt the business of both the large and small retailers of our industry.”

Standard Innovation says it views this suit a retaliatory act in response to a Standard Innovation-filed lawsuit against LELO for patent infringement, which is now before the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Standard Innovation said distribution and retail partners may contact it at legal@standardinnovation.com with any concerns or questions, and encourages them to refrain from corresponding with LELO or its counsel regarding patent infringement allegations relating to the We-Vibe 3 product.

Judge Thomas Pender, of the ITC, issued his initial determination in the investigation under “Section 337,” which found that certain LELO products, including the Tiani, Tiani 2 and Mahana, infringe more than 60 claims of Standard Innovation’s U.S. Patent No. 7,931,605. The ITC is currently scheduled to deliver its final determination on June 7.
