Northern Illinois Court declines ClearOne injunction request
ClearOne, an A/V solutions company, has announced that the District Court in the Northern District of Illinois has declined to issue a preliminary injunction against Shure Inc. from selling or promoting the Shure MXA910 and P300 audio conferencing processor in certain configurations that allegedly violate ClearOne's patents, according to a press release.
The requested injunction in particular revolves around ClearOne's U.S. Patent No. 9,635,186 for audio conferencing.
"ClearOne sought the preliminary injunction from the court to protect ClearOne's intellectual property rights and rightful place in the market," Zee Hakimoglu, CEO, ClearOne, said in the release. "While we are disappointed that the court declined to grant the preliminary injunction at this early stage in the litigation, we remain confident that ClearOne will succeed on the legal merits at trial. ClearOne remains committed to create innovative solutions in installed audio conferencing and will continue to enforce its patents vigorously."
