Zuru has been granted a preliminary injunction against the manufacturers of Balloon Bonanza in its patent infringement case in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

District Court Judge Robert W. Schroeder III’s ruling bars the making, importing, using, marketing, advertising, offering to sell or selling of Balloon Bonanza in the United States.

The firm successfully claimed Balloon Bonanza is a replica of Zuru's Bunch O Balloons.

‘’We were confident that the court would rule in our favour and are thrilled with this outcome," said Anna Mowbray, COO, Zuru.

"Zuru has invested heavily into Bunch O Balloons and our IP and will defend our rights vehemently against any infringement."

Zuru's Nick Mowbray added: “Innovation is what keeps the industry alive.

"Zuru puts a huge effort into being innovative and inferior knock offs only stifle innovation, which is why Zuru will do everything in its power to stop counterfeits of its products."
