LeapFrog's patent lawsuit against Mattel over their Fisher-Price line of PowerTouch talking books was dismissed by a Delaware court today. LeapFrog cried foul in October 2003, noting the similarities of Fisher-Price's edutainment titles to their own successful line, but the judge didn't see it that way. Both parties seemed amicable after the trial, with Mattel stating they have deep respect of intellectual property rights, since they do have a few of their own. LeapFrog head Tom Kalinske merely stated the obvious: “Technology-based patent litigation is very complex and challenging. Nonetheless, we will continue to defend our intellectual property rights in the future.” Couldn't have said it better ourselves.
