Trademarks and Patents

 

We utilize trademarks on all our products and believe our products are more marketable on a long-term basis when identified with distinctive markings. K•Swiss® is a registered trademark in the United States and certain other countries. Our name is not registered as a trademark in certain countries because of restrictions on registering names having geographic connotations. However, since K•Swiss is not a geographic name, we have often secured registrations despite such objections. Our shield emblem and the five-stripe design are also registered in the United States and certain foreign countries. The five-stripe design is not presently registered in some countries because it has been deemed ornamental by regulatory authorities. We selectively seek to register the names of our shoes, logos and the names given to certain of our technical and performance innovations, including Aosta® rubber and Shock Spring® cushioning. We have obtained patents in the United States regarding the Bio Feedback® ankle support system, the Shock Spring® cushioning system incorporated into K•Swiss’ 7.0 System® performance tennis shoes and training line, the stability design incorporated into the Si-18® tennis shoe, and other features. The ROYAL ELASTICS and Fleur de Lis trademarks used on Royal Elastics products are registered in many countries. Both marks are registered in the United States. The PALLADIUM trademark is registered in many jurisdictions, including the United States, Canada, China and key European markets. Applications to register the mark are pending in many other countries. The Company is taking steps to strengthen protection for the PALLADIUM trademark and other marks related to the Palladium business. We vigorously defend our trademarks and patent rights against infringement worldwide and employ independent security consultants to assist in such protection. To date, we are not aware of any significant counterfeiting problems regarding our products.
