Stryker claimed that Wright ‘s Get-A-Round-Knee.com infringed upon Stryker’s GetARoundKnee.com, and that Wright was engaging in trademark infringement, unfair competition and other legal breeches by maintaining the site.
"Long after Stryker’s campaign was in full swing, defendant Wright Medical Technology, Inc. registered the domain name GET-A-ROUND-KNEE.COM, all as part of an attempt to trade on the goodwill Stryker established with its unique campaign," according to the filed legal complaint.
Wright has already taken down its website, which was beginning to catch up to Stryker’s in browser searches, portending an end to the lawsuit.
"It appears that this case will likely soon settle and/or be resolved without the need for the Court to issue a further ruling," according to a document filed by Wright’s lawyers.
