The NOVOLUTO GmbH sees in the distribution of the pressure wave vibrator “Satisfyer Pro 2” in Germany an infringement of its German patent 10 2013 110 501.7, which protects a technology for contactless clitoral stimulation by means of a pressure field. She therefore charged a patent infringement lawsuit with the District Court Dusseldorf according to a press release published in this matter. The amount in dispute is 2.5 million euros.
The lawsuit, filed in August 2016, is directed against eis.de, a major German online shops for erotic products, in which the pressure wave vibrator is offered. “We are very optimistic that the decision will be in our favor”, is Michael Lenke, CEO of NOVOLUTO GmbH, cited. It is now up to the district court of Dusseldorf to decide, if a patent has been infringed.
