Kado Update: Status
We promised to update as progress is being made and though we shared with you what we could, we’ve been unable to comment, until today, on a major matter that delays our work.
A specific individual claimed Kado was infringing his US patents and has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in Israel against Kado. Kado has filed a motion with the Israeli Court to dismiss the lawsuit, as it has no legal grounds.
Furthermore, this individual used this public platform and raised some offensive and negative allegations against Kado and its activities.
An event of this kind can have a crucial impact on any small start-up activity and planning. For us, this issue required our immediate attention and demanded we allocate an important part of our limited resources to solve it.
In view of the false information that this individual spread, and after carefully looking into all the relevant details, Kado has filed a defamation lawsuit against this individual. In that lawsuit, Kado claimed, inter alia, that this individual’s publications were done in bad faith and with the sole intention of harming Kado’s activities.
As was also claimed in the lawsuit, this individual’s actions caused severe damages to Kado’s reputation, credibility and prestige and presented Kado in a negative light.
Consulted by our lawyers not to discuss the matter here, we were limited in our ability to share with you this information.
We believe in Kado’s “can do” spirit and in our products. Even though not all issues regarding this matter have been finalized yet, we believe that it was important to bring this matter to your attention.
We will pursue our rights to supply our products to you and all other Kado supporters around the world, and will bring you more updates as soon as possible.
Your Kado team
