Earlier this week I posted about litigation regarding Acushnet golf sandals; well, apparently they are in IP enforcement mode because now they are taking a company to task regarding their Titleist AP2 iron IP. On Monday Acushnet filed suit in the Eastern District of Virginia (case #: 2:11-cv-00509-AWA-DEM) against JK Crew Golf regarding a design patent, USPN JK Crew C-10 Dual Cavity Backs are listed at $525 a set, more than a new set of 2010 AP2’s will cost you, and the specs indicate that the irons are forged carbon steel with a tungsten base. You be the judge.
Must be a pretty nice margin when you consider the savings associated with no R&D or product design. You may review the entire complaint Dave Dawsey – The Golf Litigation Lawyer
