Zuru wins preliminary injunction against Telebrands

The Federal District Court of Texas has granted Tinnus Enterprises and Zuru’s motion for a preliminary injunction against Telebrands’ Battle Balloons product.

Pending the order formalites, the injunction will come into effect in the US to prohibit Telebrands from further importation and sale of their Battle Balloons product due to infringement on the US Patents (Nos. 9,232,749 and 9,315,282) which protect the Bunch O Balloons product. 

“The preliminary injunction reaffirms what was already clear, that Telebrands’ Battle Balloons infringes upon our Bunch O Balloons patent," said Anna Mowbray, chief operating officer of Zuru.

"We are pleased that the judge has ruled to protect our rights and bar this counterfeit product from the marketplace. It is important to us, our retail customers and consumers that only the best product, the original Bunch O Balloons, are available in the market. This injunction sends a clear message that innovation cannot be tampered with.”
