Miramar, Florida Patent Holder Sues Petco for Patent Infringement
As a Fort Lauderdale Patent Attorney, I closely follow patent litigation trends and news stories that are relevant to readers of this blog. In this regard, a recent patent lawsuit brought against Petco by Applica Consumer Products, Inc. of Miramar, Florida is of interest.
The Miramar Florida Patentee alleges that Petco Stores import and sell various pet productts under the brand names "ScoopFree" and "SmartScoop" that infringe their rights to a patented automatic self-cleaning cat litter box that they sell under the Littermaid mark.
