Re: Infringement of Hidez Pty Ltd’s US Intellectual Property Rights


We represent Hidez Pty Ltd (“Hidez”) in connection with US Intellectual Property matters. Hidez is the owner an assortment of US Intellectual Property rights, including trademarks, copyrights, and patents relating to its line of equine compression suits and socks. Among these Intellectual Property rights are the HIDEZ trademarks and logos, the copyrights in the photographs of Hidez’s authentic products, and US Patent Nos. D838,058, D835,358, D764,721, and D759,320.

It has recently come to Hidez’s attention that XLR8 Equine and its principals Jacob and Ashleigh Price are infringing Hidez’s US Intellectual Property rights, by using Hidez’s trademarks, logos, and photographs to sell their own XLR8-brand compression socks. Certain of the XLR8 compression socks, including the XLR8 Cryo Boots, infringe Hidez’s US D835,358 Patent. As a result, we have commenced enforcement efforts against XLR8 Equine and its principals.

Please be informed that any persons or entities making, using, or selling XLR8’s Cryo Boots are infringing Hidez’s US D835,358. Under US law, any person or entity selling an infringing product may be liable to the patent owner for money damages, even if the seller did not manufacture the infringing product. Accordingly, you should refrain from purchasing, importing into the US, offering for sale, or selling any infringing items from XLR8. All US dealers who purchase, stock, and/or-sell these items should immediately remove them from sale, both in-store and online. Failure to do so may result in legal actions against the sellers directly. Hidez takes the infringement of its Intellectual Property seriously, and intends to pursue all infringers without exception. Please govern yourself accordingly.
