Thomasville Settles Lawsuit Against Lifestyle Enterprises

Furniture Brands International reports that it has settled a patent infringement lawsuit with High Point's Lifestyle Enterprise. In the lawsuit, Furniture Brands claimed that Lifestyle infringed on Thomasville's long-running Irving Park collection.




The terms of the settlement involve Lifestyle agreeing to a "limited phase-out" of existing inventory to select customers and making a payment to FBI company Thomasville Furniture Inds. "We are pleased to have resolved this matter amicably, and at the same time in a manner that reinforces Thomasville's steadfast commitment to its brands and distinctive designs," said Thomasville President Ed Teplitz.

I think this is just a great idea for a blog, but please get an RSS feed? Relying on my Google search to pull up a new entry every time you post one just isn't working...

Thank you!
