IPC represented the McCue Family Trust in a patent infringement suit against Adidas. The lawsuit was based on the claim that Adidas’ new 4D midsole design infringes U.S. Pat. No. 9,271,542, titled “Apparatus for Damping an Applied Force” and originally filed by inventor Geoff McCue.
The McCue Family Trust filed its suit in the US District Court for the District of Middle Louisiana against Adidas for patent infringement, alleging that Adidas used McCue’s patented shock-absorbing technology in its Futurecraft 4D shoe without permission. The parties were able to amicably resolve the dispute. IPC attorneys routinely represent inventors in enforcing their patent rights against entities large and small.
