WOW Tech Declares Victory in Patent Invalidity Proceeding

NEW YORK — Following an outcome in WOW Tech Group's favor in a decision as part of a pending patent invalidity proceeding filed by Satisfyer, the company said it expects that many more will follow, especially in the U.S.

According to WOW Tech, its Pleasure Air Technology is covered by a worldwide portfolio of patents, which the company says its competitors have attacked with various invalidity proceedings in the U. S. and around the world in an attempt to avoid future findings of patent infringement.

“In the summer and fall of 2019, EIS GmbH, one of the companies behind the Satisfyer brand of competing clitoral suction devices, attacked the validity of three of WOW Tech’s U.S. patents in three separate invalidity proceedings in the United States Patent & Trademark Office’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB),” the company said. “Since then, WOW Tech has been vigorously defending the validity of its patents in all these proceedings, as well as in other proceedings in the U.S. and globally.”

On June 14, the PTAB issued its final written decision in the first of these cases, announcing that it rejected EIS’s validity attacks.

Citing highlights from the decision, a company press release said, “WOW Tech proved that the patented Womanizer products fulfilled a ‘long-felt need’ in the sexual stimulation device industry.

“The PTAB found that others in the field ‘failed to develop a sexual stimulation device that avoided the issues of clitoral discomfort or numbness’ — in complete contrast to the innovation Pleasure Air Technology from WOW Tech. The PTAB also found that praise in the industry favored upholding the validity of WOW Tech’s patent.

“Overall, this is a tremendous victory for WOW Tech, for innovators in the industry, and for all B2B customers and consumers who deserve to have the best that innovative technology has to offer without having their confidence, health and safety compromised by unauthorized knock-offs.”
