Hydor Files ITC Complaint Against Jebao
Hydor USA Inc. of Sacramento, Calif., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hydor Srl of Vicenza, Italy, the innovator and manufacturer of the Koralia and other lines of aquarium products, announced today that it has filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission against Jebao Co. Ltd. of Zhongshan City, Guangdong province, China.
The ITC complaint requests both that the RW line of Propeller Pumps and the WP line of Wave Maker products be excluded from importation into the United States, and that the distribution and sale of any such domestic inventories be stopped. The complaint asserts that these Jebao products infringe U.S. Patent No. 8,191,846, a patent protecting Hydor’s aquarium fitting technology.
