Titleist Means Business
By Kickntrue on 3/3/09
Titleist changed their ProV1 and ProV1x balls for 2009, in large part because of a Callaway lawsuit. Now they're protecting THEIR new IP.
Acushnet filed a patent infringement lawsuit today against Callaway Golf in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. In its complaint, Acushnet asserts that Callaway's Tour i and Tour ix golf balls infringe nine United States patents from Acushnet's extensive golf ball patent portfolio covering multi-piece, solid core technology.

"As the industry leader, we respect the valid intellectual property of others and expect others to respect ours," said Joe Nauman, Executive Vice President, Corporate and Legal, Acushnet Company. "We believe that disagreements like these are best dealt with between the companies involved and we have repeatedly attempted to resolve these disputes. When these discussions failed, Callaway left us with no other course of action but to move forward with this lawsuit. We are hopeful that these matters can be resolved, but we will continue to protect our intellectual property rights."
After filing the lawsuit a member of Titleist's staff challenged a memeber of Callaway's staff to a contest, to see whose is bigger. While the results of that were private, rumor has it Titleist can indeed piss further.
