WESTBURY, N.Y. and SALISBURY, Md., April 24 -- Tishcon Corp., a Westbury, New York and Salisbury, Maryland manufacturer of the patented Q-Gel(R) Coenzyme Q-10 soft gelatin capsules, the STAYWELL(R) line of nutritional supplements and other vitamins and nutritional supplements filed suit against Nature's Way Products, Inc. of Springville, Utah in federal court this past week seeking damages of $30 million and injunctive relief.
The complaint states claims for intentional trademark infringement and unfair competition under the Lanham Act, resulting from Nature's Way Products' improper and intentional use of Tishcon's federally registered STAYWELL(R) trademark on a line of its vitamins and nutritional supplements after being made aware of the prior existing registration for STAYWELL(R) by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
The action filed in the United States District Court for the District of Utah, Central Division has been assigned to Judge Stewart in the US Courthouse in Salt Lake City, Utah. The attorneys for Tishcon Corp. are Peter D. Aufrichtig of Aufrichtig Stein & Aufrichtig, P.C., (212) 557-5040, and Gregory Phillips of Howard, Phillips & Andersen.
