Osha Liang Helps Standard Innovation Achieve Global IP Settlement

HOUSTON, Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — The epic legal battle between Canada-based Standard Innovation Corp., pioneer of the innovative We-Vibe® brand of sexual wellness products, and the LELO group of companies, officially has ended, the intellectual property law firm Osha Liang LLP said today.

In what became the equivalent of the Apple v. Samsung battle of the sexual wellness industry, these long-time rivals reached a global settlement earlier this week immediately following a Markman hearing in one case in the United States and on the eve of a three-week trial in Canada.

This patent infringement dispute began in 2011, when Standard Innovation requested the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) launch an investigation into the infringement of Standard Innovation’s U.S. Patent No. 7,931,605 by several companies, including LELO.  This investigation resulted in the first-ever general exclusion order relating to sexual wellness products. Litigation in multiple jurisdictions and venues has continued ever since.

Standard Innovation was represented in the U.S. by attorneys from Osha Liang LLP and Mayer Brown LLP, with worldwide coordination and strategy led by J. Bradley White with the Canadian firm Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP. Osha Liang’s litigation team included Robert Lord, Tammy Terry, Lisa Margonis, Carlyn Burton, Peter Schechter, Monica Moussighi, and Debbie Skolaski.

Osha Liang partner Robert Lord said, “Ending years of litigation throughout the world, this global settlement protects the ingenuity and innovation of Standard Innovation’s flagship products. This settlement reflects the company’s commitment to reaching a just and proper result, while ensuring that Standard Innovation will be able to continue vigorously enforcing their valuable intellectual property rights.”

Osha Liang partner Tammy Terry said, “We and our co-counsel appreciate having had the opportunity to enforce Standard Innovation’s valuable intellectual property rights in multiple jurisdictions and venues using an approach that ultimately allowed our client to accomplish its objectives.”
