Wowwee/Gibson Guitars dispute settled

The case bought against the firm in relation to its Paper Jamz line has been dismissed.
Publish date:

In November last year, Gibson Guitars filed a lawsuit, claiming the Paper Jamz guitars were based on its own designs and thus the firm wanted to licence the designs.

Leon Garfinkle, executive vice president, WowWee Canada, explained the outcome of the case:

"WowWee has confirmed that the Gibson dispute has been settled. All cases brought by Gibson against WowWee and its vendors have been or are being dismissed with prejudice.

"Because the case was dismissed, the preliminary injunction has not been and will not be enforced."
