Skechers Sues Reebok for Patent Infringement
Sport shoes maker Skechers USA said it filed a lawsuit against larger rival Adidas AG's Reebok International Ltd, alleging infringement of patents related to the company's Go Walk shoes. The suit seeks compensatory and punitive damages and injunctive relief for infringing Skechers’ patents and design rights as well as for unfair competition, the company said in a statement. Skechers also said it would take similar action against any retailer that sells Reebok's Walk Ahead RS shoes. Reebok said on Thursday it doesn't comment on pending legal matters.
