MILL VALLEY, California (October 8, 2008) — Perfect Pushup LLC, designer and distributor of the well-known Perfect Pushup and Perfect Pullup fitness products (www.perfectpullup.com), announced that it has filed suit against Ontel Products Corporation (www.ontelproducts.com) for claims involving trademark and copyright infringement. Ontel recently launched the Iron Gym pull up product on television. The lawsuit alleges eight causes of action and claims that Ontel has systematically copied Perfect Pushup’s products and advertising in an effort to confuse consumers. Perfect Pushup previously brought an action against Ontel alleging that the company infringed the Perfect Pushup trademarks with its Pushup Pro product. The new lawsuit includes claims relating to Ontel’s alleged failure to perform under an agreement between the parties in the first lawsuit.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for copyright and trademark infringement and requests an injunction to prevent all resellers of the Iron Gym from, â€œfurther distributing, selling, causing or authorizing sales and distribution of,â€ the Iron Gym.
