Leading Travel Comfort Brand Blocks Sales of Infringing Products by Manufacturers
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 26, 2018) – Cabeau, a leader in travel products available in more than 110 countries worldwide, succeeded in blocking imitations of its patented, awardwinning Evolution® Pillow from being sold by two Chinese manufacturers, Dongguan Powerful Health Sports Co., Ltd and Xiamen Ikungfu Sports Goods Co, Ltd. Cabeau filed lawsuits in both instances, establishing that both companies infringed upon its patented pillow design.
After months of litigation, both infringers agreed to settle the cases, agreeing to mediation terms with Cabeau including an admission of infringement, destruction of the knockoff products and tooling used to create those products, pay Cabeau an undisclosed sum of damages, and formally apologize, with the acknowledgement that further infringement of Cabeau’s intellectual property would result in a liquidated damages penalty.
