Oakley Sues Electronics Retailers Over Glasses DesignFebruary 16, 2014 By Stephen Silver
Several top CE retailers have been sued by the eyewear maker Oakley over their selling a product that Oakley says infringes on its patents.
According to a report by Law360, the suit was filed in California federal court, alleging that Best Buy, Fry's Electronics and four other retailers have infringed on Oakley patents by selling the Bios Action Eyewear Cam.
The suit, which can be read in full here, also names the parent companies of Thermor, Tool King, Laptop Travel and Buydig as defendants.
The Bios product is a pair of sunglasses with a camera embedded inside, which Oakley claims it held the patent on first.
