DuPont Co. dropped a federal lawsuit filed in Late January accusing sports equipment maker Easton-Bell Sports of misusing the Kevlar trademark in packaging for bicycle tires and locks, the Associated Press reported.

Wilmington-based DuPont filed its complaint in Delaware in January, claiming Easton-Bell’s prominent use of the Kevlar trademark on packaging infringed on DuPont’s trademark and suggested that DuPont endorses or sponsors the tire and lock products, which it does not.
DuPont filed the suit a week after Easton-Bell sued DuPont in California seeking a declaration that it is not infringing on DuPonts trademarks. That suit remains ongoing, the AP reported.
