Gillette sues Dollar Shave Club
Razor company, Gillette, is suing online subscription service, Dollar Shave Club, for patent infringement.
The Gillette Company, which is owned by Procter & Gamble, filed a lawsuit in Delaware this week, alleging its e-commerce rival is violating Gillette’s intellectual property by selling razors which infringe on Gillette’s product patents.
Gillette is seeking damages and an injunction to prevent the Dollar Shave Club from selling any products which infringe on Gillette’s patented technology.
“We have long invested heavily in innovation, and our talented scientists have dedicated their careers to delivering the best shaving experience possible for men and women around the world,” said Deborah P. Majoras, chief legal officer of P&G.
“Our patents help protect the many technical advancements we’ve made through the years – and when it becomes necessary, we take action to protect these important assets.”
