WOW Tech issued a statement regarding the protection of its patents

WOW Tech has issued an official statement regarding its patents and efforts to protect them. The company says the statement was created in response to “confusion and questions” it recently received on the matter.

 

WOW Tech is one of the world’s leaders in adult toys and is known through brands such as Womanizer and We-Vibe, as well as the recently increasingly popular Arcwave brand. The big revolution in the world of erotic toys was sparked by their Pleasure Air Technology, which replaces classic vibration. According to the company, its goal is to make the situation clear and inform both its partners as well as other members of the erotic toy industry to protect each other from legal and financial repercussions.

WOW Tech’s full statement regarding the protection of their patents

WOW Tech created the market for Pleasure Air Technology stimulation devices with innovative technology that is covered by a worldwide portfolio of patents.   

We are aware that some competitors from time to time tout having one or more patents for technology they use in some of their products. We urge retailers and distributors to recognize this does not mean the competitor is not infringing WOW Tech patents. Patents by their nature have different scopes but can also overlap in certain ways, making it possible for a product covered by one patent to also infringe another patent. Indeed, when the Patent Office issues a new patent, it does not consider whether or not existing commercial products covered by that patent also infringe other patents. This means the issuance of a new patent is not any kind of guarantee that a company’s product does not infringe another patent. 

We take patent infringement seriously and we are committed to holding patent infringers responsible for violating our valuable intellectual property rights.  Anyone who makes, uses, sells, offers for sale, or imports products that infringe one or more of WOW Tech’s patents could be held liable for patent infringement, regardless of whether those infringing products are also covered by other patents. 

Retailers and distributors who are told that a product does not infringe one company’s patents may therefore be better served by seeking written assurance and maybe even indemnification from the company claiming innocence. The fact that an accused infringer has its own separate patent does not mean that accused infringer (or its retailers or distributors) cannot be found liable for infringing another company’s patents.
