NPI Settles Patent Infringement Case with Gamber-Johnson (10/4)
Wednesday, October 04, 2006 | Comments
National Products Inc. (NPI) announced that a federal court ordered Gamber-Johnson to cease and desist from selling its VersaTrue line of mounting products. The order came as part of a settlement of a patent infringement lawsuit brought by NPI. Gamber-Johnson cannot appeal the order. NPI manufactures the Ram Mount line of mounting devices, and Gamber-Johnson also sells vehicle-mounting products. NPI filed the patent infringement lawsuit in December 2004 against Gamber-Johnson after Gamber-Johnson launched a line of products, called VersaTrue, which NPI alleged were close copies of NPI's Ram Mount products. NPI also alleged that Gamber-Johnson infringed NPI's trade dress rights by copying the curved, hourglass shape of Ram Mount products. The court ordered Gamber-Johnson to immediately stop advertising the infringing VersaTrue products, and Gamber-Johnson must discontinue all sales of the VersaTrue products by the end of 2006. Gamber agreed to waive any appeal. The financial terms of the settlement are confidential.
