Spin Master and Silverlit Toys Oct 2007 Sue KB Toys to stop sales of a competing Mini Helicopter

TORONTO, Oct. 23  /PRNewswire/ -- Hong Kong-based Silverlit Toys Manufactory Ltd., an acknowledged leader in the development and manufacturing of high-quality electronic toys, and Spin Master Ltd, Silverlit's North American distribution partner and owner of the well known Air Hogs(TM) brand of flying toys, have jointly filed a lawsuit against KB Toys and Westminster Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia to stop sales of a competing Mini Helicopter.
The lawsuit, filed in the court known as the 'Rocket Docket' for its speedy resolution of intellectual property disputes, alleges that the Thunder Wolf Mini Indoor MicroLite Helicopter infringes certain U.S. design patents owned by Silverlit, creator of the Havoc Heli (TM) licensed by Spin Master and sold as the Air Hogs(R) Havoc Heli (TM).

Further, the lawsuit contends that KB and Westminster conspired to copy the popular Air Hogs (R) Havoc Heli (TM) and replace those sales with the infringing Thunder Wolf. In addition to an injunction against further sales, the lawsuit also seeks damages for past sales.
'We have spent considerable time effort and money in promoting the Havoc Heli to the point now where it is one of the top toys of the year. We will not stand by idly and let others benefit from all of those efforts. We have a strong history of vigorously protecting intellectual property which we own and license and the Air Hogs(R) Havoc Heli (TM) merits vigorous protection' notes Anton Rabie, Spin Master's CEO.
'The Havoc Heli utilizes a unique and innovative technology and we have gone to great lengths to protect this award winning toy. We will pursue any distributors or manufacturers who try to wrongfully capitalize on those innovations' adds Eddie Wong, director of marketing and sales at Silverlit.
Spin Master and Silverlit successfully obtained an injunction earlier in the year against Hobbytron for selling a knock-off version of the Air Hogs(R) Havoc Heli (TM).

Silverlit Toys Jan 2007 Tiny R/C helicopter spurs suit - Playthings
Silverlit says PicooZ counterfeits a safety hazard

SAN FRANCISCO—Hong Kong’s Silverlit Toys Manufactory Ltd. and Spin Master Ltd., Silverlit’s North American distributor, have filed a lawsuit against online retailer Hobbytron.com for allegedly knowingly importing and distributing what they say is a counterfeit version of Silverlit’s PicooZ remote-control helicopter.
<b>Silverlit</b>The complaint against Hobbytron.com accuses the company of copyright infringement, trademark infringement, unfair competition and false designation of origin charges. Spin Master and Silverlit are seeking a preliminary injunction against the company.
Hobbytron.com is the operating name of Absolute Toy Marketing Inc. of Orem, Utah. Absolute’s senior management were on a sourcing trip aboard and not available to comment for this story according to spokesperson David Politis. To the best of his knowledge, executives from the company have not seen the lawsuit, Politis told Playthings.
Hobbytron previously purchased authentic Silverlit toy helicopters, according to Silverlit, yet Silverlit claims Hobbytron.com also “knowingly carried counterfeit products—confusingly identified as PicooZ—that also infringed on Silverlit’s packaging and instruction manual.”

At this week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Hobbytron unveiled its own branded micro R/C helicopter, dubbed Picco 3. The retailer currently offers a micro R/C helicopter on its site called the Picco Z.
Silverlit’s PicooZ helicopter is the smallest R/C model helicopter in the world according to a recent certification by Guinness World Records. According to Silverlit, the toy’s development necessitated “breakthroughs in aerodynamics, hardware and programming, including elements such as the density of the foam fuselage material, advanced Li-Po batteries and protective hardware to avert any possibility of overheating.”

“It is highly unlikely that counterfeiters are concerned about these protective measures, so consumers may unwittingly have bought unauthorized knock-offs that pose fire and safety hazards to children,” said Eddie Wong, Silverlit’s director of marketing and sales.
Silverlit says that shortly after Christmas the company began receiving complaints from U.S. consumers about PicooZ helicopters overheating. Those toys turned out to be counterfeit versions of the product, according to Silverlit.
Earlier in the holiday season, the company began a campaign to notify consumers and the trade of knock-off versions of PicooZ helicopters being manufactured in China. Chinese customs officials subsequently raided manufacturing plants in six cities, seizing more than 1,000 toys, according to Silverlit.
In response to the situation, Spin Master has begun selling Silverlit’s PicooZ helicopter under a new brand name, Havoc Heli, a move intended to help avoid confusion in the marketplace between Silverlit’s toy and alleged counterfeits with the same or similar names.

Jan 2007 Silverlit Toys Manufactory Ltd & Spin Master Ltd Sue Hobbytron.com

SAN FRANCISCO -- Hong Kong-based Silverlit Toys Manufactory Ltd., an acknowledged leader in the development and manufacturing of safe, high-quality electronic toys, and Spin Master Ltd, Silverlit’s North American distribution partner and owner of the well known Air Hogs™ brand of flying toys, have jointly sued Absolute Toy Marketing, Inc., a Utah corporation d.b.a. Hobbytron.com for importing and distributing counterfeit PicooZ™ remote control (RC) helicopters. One in a line of extremely popular Silverlit RC toys, the helicopter was a runaway best seller this Christmas. Prior to the holiday season, Silverlit alerted Hong Kong authorities that several companies were manufacturing PicooZ™ knock-offs. Chinese customs officials subsequently raided manufacturing plants in six cities, seizing more than 1,000 toys.
Silverlit and its exclusive PicooZ™ licensee, Spin Master Ltd., are represented by Greenberg Traurig, which has filed a complaint and request for a jury trial in the United States District Court, Northern District of California. The claims against Hobbytron.com include copyright infringement, trademark infringement, unfair competition and false designation of origin charges. Silverlit and Spin Master are seeking a preliminary injunction in this action to stop Hobbytron.com’s wrongful acts. To avoid confusion caused by the presence of these inferior counterfeit helicopters in the marketplace, Spin Master will be selling Silverlit’s authentic “PicooZ™” helicopter under the brand name “Havoc Heli.”
“We are dedicated to creating an exciting array of electronic toys and go to tremendous lengths testing and retesting every aspect of the hardware and software to make sure our products deliver the highest quality, value and performance as well as being safe and durable,” notes Eddie Wong, director of marketing and sales at Silverlit.
“We will not allow our good name and trademarks to be trashed by unscrupulous people who are willing to sell counterfeit products dressed up to look like ours, knowing that they pose a real threat to consumers,” adds Anton Rabie, Spin Master’s CEO. “We have a strong history of vigorously protecting intellectual property which we own and license, and we will do everything within our power to ensure that retailers only buy Silverlit’s authentic legal version of this product, the “Havoc Heli” and that any other distributors trying to sell PicooZ/Havoc Heli counterfeits are immediately stopped”
Breakthrough concepts in aerodynamics, hardware and programming, including elements such as the density of the foam fuselage material, advanced Li-Po batteries and protective hardware to avert any possibility of overheating, all had to be finely tuned to ensure the quality, safety and performance of the PicooZ™. Every battery and motor undergoes a rigorous testing procedure before they are installed in the toys.
Hobbytron.com previously purchased and sold authentic Silverlit toy helicopters, so it was well aware of the company’s copyright and trademark rights. Nevertheless, it knowingly carried the counterfeit products – confusingly identified as PiccoZ – that also infringed on Silverlit’s packaging and instruction manual, the suit maintains. This product is marked as safe for children 3 and older, while Silverlit PicooZ™ is recommended only for children 8 and older. Another infringing helicopter, the “Rider,” also was identified in the Hong Kong raid.
