Massachusetts-based Bose Corp. filed a patent-infringement action on July 24th with the U.S. International Trade Commission regarding certain noise-canceling headphones manufactured by the company Beats Electronics, LLC. Bose claims that the technology used in Beast’ headphones is covered by five patents filed by Bose.
After the action was filed with the ITC, a similar lawsuit was filed in federal court in Delaware, but it is likely that this lawsuit will be put on hold while the ITC rules on the action. This is not the first lawsuit that Bose has filed against competitors in the noise-canceling headphones market. Earlier this year the company filed a complaint against against a model of headphones made by Monster Cable Products Inc., and in 2008, they settled a case with Phitek Systems Inc. regarding noise-canceling headphones.
