Oakley, Inc. and Kaenon, LLC have settled the patent infringement lawsuit filed by Oakley in the federal court in the Central District of California. By way of the lawsuit, Oakley claimed that five Kaenon models infringed three of Oakley's XYZ(r) optic patents regarding the minimization of prismatic distortion throughout the eyewear lens. Kaenon denied Oakley's allegations.
Kaenon acknowledges the high quality and innovative technology of Oakley's XYZ(r) optics products in the correction of prismatic distortion.
The parties have agreed to settle the case on mutually acceptable terms, including Kaenon's agreement that it will not infringe Oakley's XYZ(r) patent claims in the future.
