We-Vibe Petitions International Trade Commission To Uphold Patent

OTTOWA, Canada—Standard Innovation Corporation (SIC), a leading manufacturer of sexual health and wellness products, filed a complaint last week asking the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) to uphold and enforce its patent for We-Vibe, a vibrator for couples worn by women during intimacy.

The recent launch of similar products by several companies caused SIC to take the necessary steps to enforce its intellectual property rights.

Danny Osadca, SIC Chief Executive Officer, said “The We-Vibe is a world-wide sensation and the No. 1 product in its category. The We-Vibe is protected by aU.S.patent and we intend to enforce our valuable intellectual property rights, as required, based on the actions of our competitors.”

SIC is asking the ITC to block the import and sale of all products that infringe on SIC’s U.S. patent. The complaint includes manufacturers LELOiAB (Swedish entity), LELO, Inc. (U.S. entity), Natural Contours, Screaming O, Evolved Novelties and other respondents. The We-Vibe is also protected by utility or design patents in Canada, Europe, Mexico, Australia,  Brazil, Japan, and China.

SIC also filed a lawsuit seeking relief and compensation for patent infringement against LELO in U.S. District Court earlier this month.

“The lawsuit is another legal remedy for protecting our valuable intellectual property,” Osadca said.

Standard Innovation Corporation, a privately held company headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, is a world leader in high quality, safe, eco-friendly intimate products. We-Vibe was engineered to enhance the couple’s experience. The product is the most popular couples’ device in the world, with more than 2 million units sold.
