Bushnell Inc. and Laser Technology Inc. have sued the Brunton Company, American Technologies Network Corp., LS Global LLC, Sellmark Corporation, and Lanshuo Photoelectric Science and Technology Co., Ltd. for patent infringement. The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas and alleges that the defendants are infringing several Bushnell and Laser Technology patents covering various proprietary laser rangefinder technologies.
The complaint alleges that I-ON’s LS-101B and LS-101C products, Brunton’s Echo® line of products, American Technologies Network’s Ranger Eye 800® line of products, and Sightmark’s SM650 Laser Rangefinder products infringe the patents in suit.
“Bushnell’s attorneys contacted the defendants or their representatives prior to filing suit, but the defendants continued to manufacture and sell their disputed products,” said Phil Gyori, Bushnell’s Vice President of Marketing. “Bushnell and Laser Technology have invested a substantial amount of resources in the patented technology and will vigorously enforce it against all infringers. While we prefer to resolve such disputes without resorting to litigation, our management decided that this lawsuit was the only course of action left.”
