ClearOne opens lawsuit against Shure’s redesigned MXA910
ClearOne has announced that Shure’s redesigned MXA910, the MXA910W-A released in December 2019, infringes ClearOne’s US patent and has been added as an accused product pending lawsuit against Shure in Illinois, North America.
Shure began shipping its new MXA910W-A just over four months after U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Illinois Judge Edmond E. Chang of the granted ClearOne’s request for a preliminary injunction, preventing Shure from “manufacturing, marketing and selling” the original MXA910 for use “in its drop-ceiling mounting configuration.”
Shure responded by saying that its latest drop-ceiling mounting configuration fully complies with the court’s rulings.
ClearOne believe that any installation of the MXA910W-A in a drop-ceiling mounting configuration infringes ClearOne’s U.S. Patent No. 9,813,806 (the “Graham Patent”).
“In our view, Shure did not put in the time or effort necessary to ensure that its new product respects ClearOne’s intellectual property rights,” ClearOne chair and chief executive Zee Hakimoglu says.
“ClearOne is disappointed in Shure’s ongoing infringement and its refusal to compete fairly in the market.
“ClearOne remains committed to pursuing ongoing innovation, while also enforcing its patent rights vigorously.”
