Universal Electronics Sues Former Licensee Logitech
- July 19, 2011
Universal Electronics (UEI) filed suit against Logitech over 17 patents related to remote control devices. UEI issued a press release stating that, “From July 1, 2004 until June 30, 2010, Logitech previously licensed certain of UEI’s patented technologies under a renewable license. Prior to the expiration of the license, throughout the remainder of 2010 and until the filing of this complaint, UEI sought to negotiate reasonable business terms for the renewal of the license agreement but Logitech was not willing to do so. Meanwhile, Logitech continued selling its products that were previously covered under the license agreement without permission or proper payment.” 7/15, Central District of California, 8:2011cv01056.
