Dyson Sues Vax over Vac

According to an Appliance Magazine article sourcing the Guardian, Dyson is taking legal action against Chinese-owned Vax over its Mach Zen model, claiming that they infringed on the registered design of the original Dyson vacuum from fifteen years ago.

Vax has declined to comment on the case.

This is not the first time Dyson has defended what it considers to be its intellectual property and design rights.  In 2006 they won their claim against Qualtex for selling vacuum cleaner parts that were visually identical to Dyson parts.
