Blast Motion Successfully Obtains Injunction Against PPG Technologies, Inc. for Patent Infringement
(Carlsbad, Calif., – May 10, 2018) – The United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania (“Court”), in the case of Blast Motion, Inc. (“Blast Motion”) vs. PPG Technologies, Inc. (“PPG”), issued an order granting Blast Motion an injunction and default judgment against PPG.
- The District Court has issued an injunction against PPG and its principals, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, affiliates, agents, successors and assigns are, as of May 9, 2018, enjoined from making, using, selling, importing, or offering motion sensor hardware, software and/or designs that operate (and/or would enable products to operate) in the same or substantially similar manner as the PPG technology accused of infringing multiple claims for U.S. Patent No. 8,903,521.
- This injunction shall continue until the expiration of the ’521 patent or until modified by the Court.
The injunction and judgment order against PPG to stop infringement of the ’521 patent represents another success in Blast Motion’s efforts to protect its investment in research and development. In an earlier litigation against Zepp Labs, Blast Motion obtained a judgment of infringement and validity against Zepp Labs on multiple patents in its growing portfolio.
The injunction order against PPG is not directed to any claim or defense in the co-pending patent litigation between Blast Motion and Diamond Kinetics. Blast Motion’s patent case against Diamond Kinetics is currently scheduled for trial in May 2019.
