Plantronics settles with Headset Solutions

f667f7102af7412ec2bbe6fc07e67a78Plantronics has announced it has reached an out-of-court settlement with dealer Headset Solutions.

The move is part of a battle that Plantronics was having with grey wear and is the second time the Plantronics has made a trade mark infringement claim against Headset Solutions. The headset vendor said the settlement related to the sale of non-EU Plantronics products that it claimed infringed EU trade mark laws.

Headset Solutions have been settled with legally binding undertakings being given and payment of an undisclosed sum to Plantronics.

Paul Dunne, UK & Ireland country manager at Plantronics, said: “We want to make it clear to those who deal in unauthorised Plantronics goods that we will continue our robust stance on illegal product and that we remain committed to our channel community.”

In February, Plantronics settled with Manchester firm PMC Telecom and last year the headset player settled with James Products and Corporate Direct (Europe) and Incom Telecommunications.
