Easoon (dba dasso) Scores Major Patent Litigation Victory Over MOSO


June 21, 2023


Easoon, under dasso, wins $1.5M in a patent infringement case against MOSO for bamboo materials. Additional claims include trade secret misappropriation.


ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ -- Easoon USA, LLC, (Easoon) d/b/a/ dasso, a leading supplier of outdoor bamboo materials via its dassoXTR brand, announced that the United States District Court for the District of Delaware entered judgment in its favor in a long-running patent infringement dispute with direct competitors MOSO North America, Inc., and MOSO International, BV (collectively MOSO). Easoon d/b/a/ dasso is the exclusive license of United States Patent 8,709,578 (the 578 patent) directed to a bamboo scrimber and a method of manufacturing the scrimber.


The 578 patent is owned by Dasso International, Inc.


A unanimous twelve-person jury found that MOSOs Bamboo X-treme infringed United States Patent 8,709,578 (the 578 patent). The jury also found that the method of manufacturing Bamboo X-treme infringed the 578 patent. Furthermore, the jury found that the 578 patent was valid, and that MOSOs infringement was willful.


In addition to being liable for patent infringement, MOSO was found to have: (1) violated the Delaware Deceptive Trade Practices Act; (2) tortiously interfered with Easoons prospective economic advantage; and (3) aided and abetted a breach of fiduciary duty owed to Easoon by Mr. Kelly, former President of the dassoXTR brand and current CEO of MOSO North America. Mr. Kelly, Mr. Clifton and Mr. Osterman were found to have misappropriated Easoons trade secrets. Mr. Kelly was also found to have breached his fiduciary duty to Easoon and to have committed fraud. Easoon d/b/a/ dasso was awarded a judgment for $1.5MM against MOSO and Mr. Brett Kelly, Mr. Mark Clifton, and Mr. Steve Osterman.


These individuals previously worked for or on behalf of Easoon d/b/a dasso and subsequently became employees of MOSO.


We intend to pursue a permanent injunction against further importation and sale of Bamboo X treme. We will also seek a trebling of the damages award as well as an award of our attorneys fees in this matter along with pre-and post-judgment interest.
