April 11, 2013 — Patent Dispute with Lelo Inc. — an Open Letter to the Industry
Standard Innovation highly values the relationships that we’ve built with our global partners in this industry. We act and communicate with integrity, fairness and honesty and have done so since day one. These values are built into the DNA of this company. So it deeply disturbs me to learn that Lelo Inc. has drawn you — our valued partners — into its lawsuit against us.
This is what we know: Lelo alleges that a component of the We-Vibe® 3 charging mechanism infringes a Lelo-owned U.S. patent. Lelo did not invent the charging mechanism technology, nor does it use it in its current product line — it recently purchased a patent, allegedly covering the technology, from a third party. We believe that this is a clear case of patent trolling, wherein a company purchases someone else’s patent and then looks for companies that potentially infringe and threatens them with legal action. It is disappointing when companies choose this path. We see this lawsuit as a retaliatory act by Lelo for suits we have filed against it to protect our We-Vibe® products.
I won’t let the strong We-Vibe® brand be tarnished by these allegations. This is a distraction created by Lelo on the heels of the initial determination made by Judge Thomas Pender for the United States International Trade Commission finding that certain Lelo products, including the Tiani, Tiani 2 and Mahana, infringe more than 60 claims of Standard Innovation’s U.S. patent. The ITC is currently scheduled to deliver its final determination on June 7, 2013. I am confident that the ITC will uphold Judge Pender’s initial determination that the We-Vibe® patent is valid and infringed by Lelo.
What can we do? We ask you to continue with your business as usual while we work with our legal experts. If you have received a threatening letter but have not contacted us, we ask that you do so immediately at email@example.com.
It is not enough to say that we are deeply concerned that some of you have received letters threatening legal action by Lelo. This dispute is between Lelo and Standard Innovation Corporation. We stand behind our innovative We-Vibe® products and we stand with you, our dedicated and loyal partners. Standard Innovation will continue to do what it does best — invent and innovate in the sexual health and wellness industry.

April 11, 2013—OTTAWA, ONTARIO—On April 2, 2013, Standard Innovation® was named in a U.S. civil action, filed by Lelo Inc., alleging that a component of the We-Vibe® 3 charging mechanism infringes on a Lelo-owned U.S. patent. Standard Innovation 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 (ITC). Lelo did not invent the charging mechanism technology, nor does it use it in its current product line — they recently purchased it from a third party.
Standard Innovation is informing distributors and retailers of the We-Vibe® 3 that it stands behind its We-Vibe® line of products and with our valued channel partners.
“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,” said Danny Osadca, CEO, Standard Innovation. “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 invites its distribution and retail partners to contact it at firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Standard Innovation stands behind its innovative We-Vibe® products and our dedicated and loyal partners.
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, 2013. Standard Innovation is confident that the ITC will uphold its initial determination that the Company’s patent is valid and infringed by Lelo.
