Electric Fireplace Patent Infringement Lawsuit

On June 17, 2011, Twin-Star International, Inc., filed a complaint alleging that Shenzhen Reliap Industrial Co., Ltd. of China unlawfully engaged in unfair methods of competition and unfair acts in connection with the importation into the U.S., sale for importation, and/or sale within the U.S. after importation of certain electric fireplaces.

According to the complaint, the unfair methods of competition and unfair acts at issue include the defendants’ actual and threatened misappropriation of Twin-Star’s trade secrets, infringement of registered copyrights, and breach of contract.

The complaint refers to Twin-Star’s trade secrets, component supplier list, customer list, manufacturing process, development of the Twin-Star technology including hardware and software for a “Twin-Star Prototype 3 LED Functional Indicator Display,” and certain Twin-Star registered U.S. copyrights – including for the “E1 MANUAL,” “E22 MANUAL,” “KINETIC SCULPTURE 1,” and “KINETIC SCULPTURE 2” – as the intellectual property at issue.

In the complaint, Twin-Star alleges that Shenzhen imported and sold Reliap Electric Fireplaces and related user manuals and that the company wrongfully entered into the electric fireplace products industry through the misappropriation of Twin-Star’s trade secrets.
