A court has denied Shure’s preliminary injunction in an ongoing patent dispute with ClearOne.
According to Shure, the Court didn’t grant the requested preliminary injunction, in part, because it found that ClearOne’s “lackluster sales” do not support a claim that Shure will be substantially and immediately harmed absent a preliminary injunction.
Shure stated: “Rather than competing fairly, ClearOne responded to Shure’s successful launch of its innovative MXA product line by releasing its own product mimicking the MXA910. In an effort to promote its infringing product, ClearOne decided to mislead the marketplace—which includes customers of both companies—by making false and misleading statements about Shure’s products. Shure welcomes the opportunity to present our claims against ClearOne to a jury later this year. We are confident that when presented with the facts, the jury will agree that ClearOne’s BMA CT product infringes on our ‘723 design patent and that ClearOne spread false claims in the marketplace to intimidate and confuse customers.”
