2015年5月1日,以品牌名稱Clarisonic(科萊麗)在美國境內與全球,製造販賣其音波洗臉機、音波淨膚儀等系列產品的Pacific Bioscience Laboratories, Inc.公司,向美國華盛頓州西區聯邦地院提起15起專利侵權告訴,控告在美國境內透過網路等通路販賣之多款類似的洗臉機產品,侵害其所擁有之發明專利、設計專利或商品外觀(trade dress)等權利。
 
依據各款被控侵權產品之差異,原告Pacific Bioscience所主張被侵害的權利也有所調整,例如:Pacific Bioscience控告上海安自康公司(Shanghai Anzikang Electric Co. Ltd.)案(下稱本案),Pacific Bioscience主張上海安自康的蒂歐尼超音波潔面機(Dione facial cleansing system),侵害原告所擁有之兩件發明專利、一件設計專利以及Clarisonic系列產品外觀等權利,其販賣行為並構成違反華盛頓州消費者保護法(RCW § 19.86.090)以及普通法(common law)之不公平競爭行為。
 
本案兩件系爭發明專利內容如下:
美國專利編號US 7,320,691,名稱為「用來對早期粉刺進行聲波/機械式治療的裝置與方法(Apparatus and method for acoustic/mechanical treatment of early stage acne)」,於2008年1月22日核發。本件專利在經過再審查(reexamination)後,原本請求項1至52之可專利性被確認,並增加了請求項53至64;
美國專利編號US 7,386,906,名稱為「用於個人照護器具之振動刷頭配件系統(Oscillating brushhead attachment system for a personal care appliance)」,於2008年6月17日核發。
 
本案系爭設計專利內容如下:
美國專利編號US D523,809,名稱為「用於電動皮膚刷的充電器(Charger for an electric skin brush)」,於2006年6月27日核發。
 
Pacific Bioscience所擁有品牌Clarisonic Plus與Clarisonic Pro系列產品為例,主張其商品外觀包括但不限於下列元素:產品之沙漏狀形狀、產品頭部形狀、頭部兩邊相同之弧形、位在裝置正面之淚滴型面板、位於淚滴型面板上部之一或多個控制鍵、位於淚滴型面板正上方的兩個圓形燈、位在裝置背部最窄處的四個圓形燈、在裝置背部最寬處標示商品名稱、刷頭刷毛中有以對比色呈現之刷毛環、前述刷毛環環繞刷頭且刷毛高低不同之形狀與路徑、表面具備平均分布之六個大孔的刷蓋等。
 
Pacific Bioscience亦主張其產品充電器具備以下商品外觀元素:產品之靴型形狀、產品前緣面板以誇張比例向前延伸、產品前部支架明顯高於後部支架等。

Pacific Bioscience在2011年12月為法國L’Oréal S.A所併購,所以L’Oréal S.A是在本案中被主張之各項權利的權利所有人,而Pacific Bioscience則是在美國境內的專屬被授權人。(1256字;表3)
 
表一、系爭專利請求項解析
US 7,320,691請求項1 US 7,386,906請求項1
1. An apparatus for treatment of acne, comprising:
一種用於粉刺治療的裝置,包括
1. A brushhead assembly attachment system for a personal care appliance which includes an appliance body, comprising:
一種用在包括器具本體之個人照護器具上的刷頭組件配件系統,包括
at least two contacting elements having end faces, all of the end faces being in substantially the same plane, wherein at least one contacting element is a moving contacting element, the end faces of the moving contacting element moving in a single plane;
至少兩個具備底面的接觸元件,所有底面實際位於同一平面中,其中至少一個接觸元件是一移動式接觸元件,該移動元件之底面再一單一平面中移動
a hub member adapted to be secured to a driven shaft of a personal care appliance, the hub member including a plurality of locking elements around the periphery thereof;
一中樞構件被適用來固定於一個人照護器具之驅動軸上,前述中樞構件包括圍繞其周邊的複數鎖定元件
a mounting assembly for holding the contacting elements substantially adjacent to each other; and
一支撐組件,用來支持實際彼此相鄰接之接觸元件
an outer brushhead portion having a first cleaning member extending therefrom, the outer brushhead portion having a connecting structure for removably joining the outer brushhead assembly to the personal care appliance; and
一外部刷頭部件,具備從其延伸而出的第一清潔構件,該外部刷頭部件具備一連接結構,用來可拆卸地連接到前述個人照護器具之外部刷頭組件
an assembly for positively moving said at least one moving contacting element bi-directionally about a neutral position relative to at least one adjacent contacting element, to produce alternating tension and compression of the skin,
一組件,用來以在相對至少一個鄰接接觸元件之中心位置雙向移動的方式、確實移動前述至少一個移動式接觸元件,藉以對皮膚產生交替性拉力與壓力
an inner brushhead portion having a second cleaning member extending therefrom, configured to fit within the outer brushhead portion, which is configured to encircle the inner brushhead portion,
一內部刷頭部件,具備從其延伸而出的第二清潔構件,被配置來接合在、配置來環繞內部刷頭部件之前述外部刷頭部件中
wherein when the apparatus is positioned so that the end faces of the contacting elements contact the skin, an action on the skin in the plane of a skin area to be treated for acne is produced to remove sebum plugs from skin pores, permitting ready removal thereof from the skin.
其中當前述裝置被放置來讓接觸元件之底面接觸皮膚,對要被治療粉刺之一皮膚區域平面上的皮膚所為動作會被產生,藉以從毛孔移除皮脂栓,讓其預備好被從皮膚移除
wherein the inner brushhead portion includes a plurality of depending legs, at least some of which mate with the locking elements on the hub member, such that oscillating movement of the hub member results in similar movement of the inner brushhead portion,
其中內部刷頭部件包括複數支撐腳,至少其中部分與中樞構件上鎖定元件相結合,藉以讓中樞構件之振動動作會導致出內部刷頭部件之類似動作
 pclass_11164e_20150527.gif wherein at least others of the depending legs are configured to removably latch onto a portion of the outer brushhead portion, providing a joining relationship therebetween, but permitting oscillation of the inner brushhead portion relative to the outer brushhead portion,
其中至少其他支撐腳被配置來可拆卸地栓在外部刷頭部件的局部上,提供兩者間的接合關係,但讓內部刷頭部件可以相對於外部刷頭部件而振動
wherein the inner brushhead portion and the outer brushhead portion are configured relative to each other and to the hub member such that attaching the outer brushhead portion to the appliance body by means of said connecting structure results in both connection of the outer brushhead portion to the appliance body and connection of the inner brushhead portion to the hub member.
其中內部刷頭部件與外部刷頭部件被配置來彼此對應且對應中樞構件,如此透過前述連接結構將外部刷頭部件附加至器具本體會同時導致、外部刷頭部件與器具本體相連接以及內部刷頭部件與中樞構件相連接
