Royal Philips Electronics announced that it has filed lawsuits against The Gillette Co. in the District Court of Delaware in the U.S. and the Landesgericht Dusseldorf in Germany for alleged infringement of its patented sonic technology.

The Dutch-based personal care appliance maker alleges Gillette has infringed on its Sonicare-brand toothbrush technology. Philips says it received patents for the technology in 1995 in the U.S. and in 2000 in Europe and also says it took 10 years to market the toothbrush.

"While we welcome honest and innovative competition, we expect third parties to respect our intellectual property assets," said Conrad Smits, CEO of Philips Oral Healthcare. "Philips will defend its intellectual property rights in order to be able to recover its investments in innovation and to continue to create new innovative products in the future."
