February 25, 2020 – Today ClearOne issued a press release detailing their latest legal action an ongoing patent dispute with Shure, specifically Shure’s newly-design MXA910W-A. In response I received the following statement from Shure’s representative, which reinforces their previous position.
“The court made clear in its decision issued in November that the ‘806 patent preliminary injunction does not address the MXA910W-A which remains available for sale and was specifically designed to meet the court’s requirements.
“Shure believes that ClearOne’s latest legal antics are simply another attempt to disrupt the market with smoke and mirrors and an improper interpretation of its IP rights. We look forward to presenting our case before a jury later this year and putting this matter to rest soon. As always, our top priority remains providing an uninterrupted supply of innovative products to our customers.”
January 13, 2020 — Today ClearOne issued a press release in an ongoing patent dispute with Shure, this time regarding Shure’s newly-designed MXA910W-A. In response, I received the following statement from Shure’s representative, which reinforces their position as stated on their website.
“The Court has explicitly stated the preliminary injunction of the MXA910 issued in August 2019 does not address the newly designed MXA910W-A. Shure specifically designed the new MXA910W-A to comply with the court’s orders, and we remain confident that this new product does not violate the ‘806 patent. The MXA910W-A remains available in the US and our top priority continues to be providing an uninterrupted supply of innovative products to our customers. We continue to believe the ‘806 patent is invalid and look forward to presenting our case in Court. Today’s announcement is another example of ClearOne competing in the courtroom because it cannot effectively compete in the marketplace.”
