Callpod, a CE accessory manufacturer, announced yesterday it has filed a lawsuit against Target, alleging “that Target’s ‘6-in-1 device charger’ sold by Target infringes Callpod’s intellectual property rights.”
The suit, according to a release, was filed in the Northern District of Illinois. Callpod said it is seeking a temporary restraining order to stop Target from selling and offering for sale the 6-in-1 device charger.
“Intellectual property is of paramount importance to Callpod and we will vigorously defend our rights against infringers,” said Darren Guccione, Callpod CEO, in the release.
Anne Rodgers, a spokeswoman for Target, said the company could not comment on pending litigation. A call to Callpod was not returned as of this posting.
