Earlier today, we reported that wireless music system powerhouse Sonos had filed a lawsuit against Denon in regards to its HEOS line of wireless music systems. The lawsuit alleged, among other things, infringement on four of their patents and asked the court for an injunction to stop HEOS products from being sold.
Today, we received a statement from D+M Group, the parent of Denon, in response to this lawsuit.
See the D+M Group’s statement on the Sonos lawsuit…
The statement from D+M Group is short and to the point. It is shown in its entirety below:
D+M has been a technology innovator for over 100 years and has an extensive intellectual property portfolio to protect our products. We are aware of the lawsuit filed by Sonos and take the allegations made against us very seriously. D+M will defend itself fully in this suit and will also take all necessary actions to protect our technology and product investment.
We spoke briefly with a D+M Group representative who indicated that there will be no further comment while the company studies the just-received Sonos lawsuit. However, their statement seems to indicate a willingness to engage.
We will continue to follow this story and report on any new developments.
