accusa-oreal


L’ORÉAL ha ricevuto recentemente una denuncia in USA per “violazione di brevetto e pubblicità ingannevole” .

Ad accusarla è un marchio nascente nel panorama della cosmesi per capelli. La società accusa il colosso dell’Haircare di aver acquisito con l’inganno informazioni sul loro prodotto di punta e poi aver copiato quella tecnologia in tre prodotti: Matrix Bond Ultim8, Redken pH-Bonder e L’Oréal Professionnel Smartbond.

Pare che nel 2015 L’Oréal avesse già tentato di assumere dipendenti responsabili del prodotto “copiato”, per poi iniziare un processo di acquisizione del marchio durante il quale sarebbe venuta a conoscenza di informazioni-prodotto riservate, mandando infine in fumo ogni trattativa e uscendo sul mercato con prodotti stranamente simili.

L’Oréal to Fight California Firm’s ‘Knockoff’ Lawsuit

A California startup has sued L’ORÉAL alleging that the U.S. unit of the French company, copied an award-winning hair product and its related marketing strategy.

In the lawsuit, te startup alleges that the French company gained access to its proprietary technology, marketing strategy and one of its unpublished patent applications during the discussions about a possible takeover in 2015.

The startup claims L’Oréal started selling three products that infringe the related patent about a year later. It also claims “marketing imagery” used by L’Oreal “strongly resembles” its own.

“After receiving that confidential information L’Oréal ceased pursuing the acquisition of the brand, and instead willfully took and copied its technology without authorization  to create three slavish ‘me too’ knockoffs,” according to the U.S. company’s court filing.

The L’Oreal products cited in the filing are Matrix Bond Ultim8, Redken pH-Bonder and L’Oréal Professionnel Smartbond.

The Startup also said the French company in 2015 tried to hire employees who it believed were responsible for a product  before contacting the startup’s management about acquiring the company later that year. L’Oréal stopped pursuing the deal after the two parties signed a nondisclosure agreement and shared confidential information.
