Meyer Sound and VUE Audiotechnik Settle Lawsuit

BERKELEY and ESCONDIDO, CA — Meyer Sound and VUE Audiotechnik have settled a lawsuit that Meyer fled last June against VUE. “Meyer Sound alleged VUE infringed Meyer Sound’s iconic wave trademark, and asserted other claims against VUE and a former Meyer Sound employee currently working for VUE,” Meyer noted, in a press release.

“We are pleased with the settlement,” said Helen Meyer, co-founder and executive VP. “It resolves issues related to our company’s valuable trade secrets, and eliminates the possibility that people might be misled into assuming that VUE or its products are associated with or endorsed by Meyer Sound.”

In response, VUE Audiotechnik co-founder Jim Sides posted an “open letter.” Calling the lawsuit an “unexpected distraction,” Sides noted that “I left Meyer on great terms, and have nothing but gratitude for the opportunities presented to me during my tenure there.”

Sides also noted that “VUE is forging entirely new ground through unique technologies utilizing beryllium-based transducers and advanced subwoofer topologies.” Although VUE agreed to change the look of its company logo, other terms of the settlement agreement were not disclosed.
