Adidas Says Under Armour Violated Mobile Fitness Patents
Law360, New York (February 5, 2014, 12:26 PM EST) -- Adidas AG filed suit in Delaware federal court Tuesday alleging Under Armour Inc. infringed a series of patents held by the world's second-largest manufacturer of athletic goods covering workout-tracking devices and software.
Germany-based Adidas asked the court for an order barring Under Armour from infringing 10 of its patents covering a "location-aware" fitness training system that enables users to monitor their heart rates, the calories they've burned and other data about their exercise routines via their smartphones.
"Unless enjoined by this court, defendant Under Armour's acts of infringement will continue to damage Adidas irreparably," the suit said.
