WAX WINS PATENT INFRINGEMENT CASE
Court Finds that Auto Wax’s Clay Patents are Valid and Infringed
Auto Wax Company, Inc.
announced today that a federal court in Nashville, Tennessee has entered
a judgment stating that Auto Wax's clay patent is valid and enforceable,
and that the automobile clay products sold by Texas Quality Car Care
& Detail Supplies,
Auto Shield International, Inc. and several other entities are covered
by the Auto Wax
patent. The judgment entered by the federal court orders the defendants
to pay Auto Wax
$50,000 including $10 per bar of infringing day sold by defendants. In
addition, the judgment also enjoins the defendants from selling
infringing clay products.
Auto Wax's President, David Miller,
said: 'The judgment entered in this case reflects
what we've been saying all along. Our clay patents are valid and
enforceable. While we think this litigation could have easily been
avoided, we're nevertheless very happy that the judgment confirms our
Auto Wax sells Clay Magic®, the
industry's leading surface preparation bar. For more
