Allyson Wallace, initially acting pro se, sued Ideavillage Products Corporation for infringement of U.S. Design Patent No. D485,990 (“the ’990 patent”), entitled “Body Washing Brush.” Wallace is the named inventor of the ’990 patent. Ideavillage is a developer and marketer of “As Seen on TV” consumer products. Wallace alleged that Ideavillage’s product, Spin Spa, which is an embodiment of U.S. Design Patent No. D550,914, entitled “Hand Held Cleaning Unit,” infringed the ’990 patent. Ideavillage moved for summary judgment on the basis of non-infringement.
