CASE NO. 3:13-CV-01938
NATURE OF THE CASE

THE PARTIES

because of the claim under 35 U.S.C. § 271 for patent infringement, and under 28 U.S.C. §§
1331 and 1338(a) as well as 15 U.S.C. § 1121 because of the claims under 15 U.S.C. §§ 1114(1)
and 1125(a) for federal trademark infringement and unfair competition in violation of Section
32(1) and 43(a) of the Lanham Act.
6. This Court has supplemental jurisdiction over Hydro Flask’s state law claims

Page 4 – COMPLAINT FOR PATENT AND TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
CASE NO. 3:13-CV-01938
THE ASSERTED PATENT
13. U.S. Design Patent No. D688,912 entitled Wide Mouth Flask (“the ‘912 patent”)
was issued on September 3, 2013 to Hydro Flask.
14. Hydro Flask has owned the ‘912 patent throughout the period of Lifeline’s
infringing acts, and still owns the ‘912 patent.
15. The ‘912 patent covers the ornamental design of a wide mouth flask. A copy of
the ‘912 patent is attached as Exhibit B.
16. Hydro Flask has placed a notice of the ‘912 patent on any covered products it
sells, in compliance with 35 U.S.C. § 287.
THE ACCUSED PRODUCTS
17. Lifeline markets and sells bottles and growlers. Examples include Lifeline
products listed as vacuum-insulated double-wall growlers under model numbers 7500, 7500BK,
and 7500WH on Defendant’s Website and on page 21 of Defendant’s 2013/2014 Catalog (the
“Lifeline Growlers”). A copy of relevant excerpts from Defendant’s Website and 2013/2014
Catalog are attached as Exhibit C.
FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION – VIOLATIONS OF THE LANHAMACT: TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT,
UNFAIR COMPETITION, AND FALSE DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN
18. The allegations of the preceding paragraphs are hereby incorporated by reference
in this section as though set forth fully herein.
19. Since 2011, Hydro Flask has advertised and promoted the sale of its insulated
bottles under the Mark. Hydro Flask’s goods bearing the Mark have come to be well and
favorably known by purchasers who recognize the distinctive product configuration.
20. Hydro Flask has used and continues to use the Mark in commerce throughout the
United States, including in Oregon.
Case 3:13-cv-01938 Document 1 Filed 11/01/13 Page 4 of 11 Page ID#: 4
Page 5 – COMPLAINT FOR PATENT AND TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
CASE NO. 3:13-CV-01938
21. Hydro Flask’s use of the Mark is distinctive in connection with the goods bearing
the Mark.
22. Hydro Flask has never authorized Lifeline to use the Mark. Lifeline has no license
or authority from Hydro Flask permitting the use of the Mark on bottles, flasks, or growlers.
23. Notwithstanding Hydro Flask’s established rights, Lifeline markets, offers for
sale, and sells products, including at least the Lifeline Growlers shown in Exhibit C, having a
confusingly similar product configuration to Hydro Flask’s products bearing the Mark.
24. Lifeline promotes its goods in some of the same or similar channels, and to some
of the same or similar consumers as does Hydro Flask.
25. As an example, both Lifeline and Hydro Flask sell their goods through Made in
Oregon stores, where the Lifeline Growlers are presented to the consumer in close proximity to
the Hydro Flask products bearing the Mark. A photograph showing this proximity in the
marketplace, taken at the Made in Oregon store, located at 340 SW Morrison Street, Suite 1300,
Portland, Oregon 97204, is attached as Exhibit D.
26. Upon information and belief, Lifeline has engaged in this infringing activity
despite having actual knowledge of Hydro Flask’s trademark rights in the Mark.
27. Lifeline’s actions are likely to lead the public to conclude incorrectly that
Lifeline’s goods originate with, are related to, or are authorized or sponsored by Hydro Flask,
which will damage both Hydro Flask and the public.
28. Upon information and belief, Lifeline’s actions are intended to enrich Lifeline.
29. Upon information and belief, Lifeline has advertised and offered its goods for sale
using the Mark with the intention of misleading, deceiving, or confusing consumers as to the
origin of its goods and of trading on Hydro Flask’s reputation and goodwill.
Case 3:13-cv-01938 Document 1 Filed 11/01/13 Page 5 of 11 Page ID#: 5
Page 6 – COMPLAINT FOR PATENT AND TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
CASE NO. 3:13-CV-01938
30. Upon information and belief, Lifeline’s activities are likely to cause confusion
and have caused confusion among Hydro Flask’s customers and potential customers.
31. Lifeline’s unauthorized use of the Mark in connection with the sale, offering for
sale, distribution, and advertising of goods in U.S. commerce is likely to cause confusion,
mistake, or deception.
32. Lifeline’s unauthorized use of the Mark in interstate commerce as described
above constitutes trademark infringement and unfair competition under 15 U.S.C. §§ 1114(1)
and 1125(a) and is likely to cause consumer confusion, mistake, or deception.
33. Lifeline’s unauthorized marketing and sale of its goods in interstate commerce
using the infringing product configuration constitutes a false designation of origin or false
representation that wrongfully and falsely designates Lifeline’s goods as originating from or
connected with Hydro Flask, and constitutes the use of false descriptions or representations in
interstate commerce in violation of 15 U.S.C. § 1125(a).
34. Upon information and belief, as a direct and proximate result of Lifeline’s
trademark infringement and acts of unfair competition, Hydro Flask has suffered irreparable
harm to its business and reputation, and also has suffered and continues to suffer damages in an
amount to be determined by the trier of fact.
35. Upon information and belief, as a direct and proximate result of Lifeline’s
trademark infringement and acts of unfair competition, Lifeline has unjustly profited from those
acts.
36. Upon information and belief, Lifeline’s trademark infringement and acts of unfair
competition will cause further irreparable injury to Hydro Flask if Lifeline is not restrained by
this Court from further violation of Hydro Flask’s rights.
Case 3:13-cv-01938 Document 1 Filed 11/01/13 Page 6 of 11 Page ID#: 6
Page 7 – COMPLAINT FOR PATENT AND TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
CASE NO. 3:13-CV-01938
37. Upon information and belief, Lifeline’s activities are deliberate and willful.
38. Hydro Flask has no adequate remedy at law.
39. The goodwill and reputation for quality that Hydro Flask has worked hard and
long to cultivate has been threatened by Lifeline’s actions.
40. Unless Lifeline is enjoined from the use of the Mark on the accused and other
products, such use will continue to cause consumer confusion and will continue to cause
irreparable harm to Hydro Flask and the public.
SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION – COMMON LAWTRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
AND UNFAIR COMPETITION
41. The allegations of the preceding paragraphs are hereby incorporated by reference
in this section as though set forth fully herein.
42. Lifeline, by the acts complained of herein, has infringed Hydro Flask’s common
law trademark rights in the Mark by using the same distinctive product configuration in
connection with its goods.
43. Lifeline has competed unfairly with Hydro Flask and has otherwise used the
reputation and goodwill of Hydro Flask to offer and sell Lifeline’s goods as if they were
sponsored, approved by, or connected with Hydro Flask.
44. Lifeline’s use of Hydro Flask’s Mark on Lifeline’s goods constitutes unfair
competition and trademark infringement under the laws of Oregon and other States.
THIRD CAUSE OF ACTION – INFRINGEMENT OF THE ‘912 PATENT
45. The allegations of the preceding paragraphs are hereby incorporated by reference
in this section as though set forth fully herein.
46. Hydro Flask has never authorized Lifeline to make, use, offer to sell, sell, and/or
import into the United States products covered by the ‘912 patent.
Case 3:13-cv-01938 Document 1 Filed 11/01/13 Page 7 of 11 Page ID#: 7
Page 8 – COMPLAINT FOR PATENT AND TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT
CASE NO. 3:13-CV-01938
47. Upon information and belief, Lifeline has infringed and is infringing the ‘912
patent by making, using, offering to sell, selling, and/or importing into the United States products
that infringe the ‘912 patent.
48. For example, at least the Lifeline Growlers described above and shown in Exhibit
C infringe the ‘912 patent.
49. Upon information and belief, infringement by Lifeline has been and continues to
be willful, with knowledge of the ‘912 patent and Lifeline’s infringement thereof, entitling
plaintiff to increased damages under 35 U.S.C. § 284 and to attorneys’ fees incurred in
prosecuting this action under 35 U.S.C. § 285.
50. Upon information and belief, infringement by Lifeline will continue unless
enjoined by this court.
51. Hydro Flask has suffered, and will continue to suffer, substantial damages in an
amount to be proven at trial, through lost profits, lost sales and/or lost royalties, due to
infringement of the ‘912 patent by Lifeline.
52. Hydro Flask has suffered, and will continue to suffer, permanent and irreparable
injury, for which Hydro Flask has no adequate remedy at law.
53. Hydro Flask is entitled to relief as provided by 35 U.S.C. §§ 281, 283-285, and
289.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ATTORNEYS COMPLETING CIVIL COVER SHEET FORM JS 44
Authority For Civil Cover Sheet
The JS 44 civil cover sheet and the information contained herein neither replaces nor supplements the filings and service of pleading or other papers as
required by law, except as provided by local rules of court. This form, approved by the Judicial Conference of the United States in September 1974, is
required for the use of the Clerk of Court for the purpose of initiating the civil docket sheet. Consequently, a civil cover sheet is submitted to the Clerk of
Court for each civil complaint filed. The attorney filing a case should complete the form as follows:
I.(a) Plaintiffs-Defendants. Enter names (last, first, middle initial) of plaintiff and defendant. If the plaintiff or defendant is a government agency, use
only the full name or standard abbreviations. If the plaintiff or defendant is an official within a government agency, identify first the agency and
then the official, giving both name and title.
(b) County of Residence. For each civil case filed, except U.S. plaintiff cases, enter the name of the county where the first listed plaintiff resides at the
time of filing. In U.S. plaintiff cases, enter the name of the county in which the first listed defendant resides at the time of filing. (NOTE: In land
condemnation cases, the county of residence of the "defendant" is the location of the tract of land involved.)
(c) Attorneys. Enter the firm name, address, telephone number, and attorney of record. If there are several attorneys, list them on an attachment, noting
in this section "(see attachment)".
II. Jurisdiction. The basis of jurisdiction is set forth under Rule 8(a), F.R.Cv.P., which requires that jurisdictions be shown in pleadings. Place an "X"
in one of the boxes. If there is more than one basis of jurisdiction, precedence is given in the order shown below.
United States plaintiff. (1) Jurisdiction based on 28 U.S.C. 1345 and 1348. Suits by agencies and officers of the United States are included here.
United States defendant. (2) When the plaintiff is suing the United States, its officers or agencies, place an "X" in this box.
Federal question. (3) This refers to suits under 28 U.S.C. 1331, where jurisdiction arises under the Constitution of the United States, an amendment
to the Constitution, an act of Congress or a treaty of the United States. In cases where the U.S. is a party, the U.S. plaintiff or defendant code takes
precedence, and box 1 or 2 should be marked.
Diversity of citizenship. (4) This refers to suits under 28 U.S.C. 1332, where parties are citizens of different states. When Box 4 is checked, the
citizenship of the different parties must be checked. (See Section III below; NOTE: federal question actions take precedence over diversity
cases.)
III. Residence (citizenship) of Principal Parties. This section of the JS 44 is to be completed if diversity of citizenship was indicated above. Mark this
section for each principal party.
IV. Nature of Suit. Place an "X" in the appropriate box. If the nature of suit cannot be determined, be sure the cause of action, in Section VI below, is
sufficient to enable the deputy clerk or the statistical clerk(s) in the Administrative Office to determine the nature of suit. If the cause fits more than
one nature of suit, select the most definitive.
V. Origin. Place an "X" in one of the six boxes.
Original Proceedings. (1) Cases which originate in the United States district courts.
Removed from State Court. (2) Proceedings initiated in state courts may be removed to the district courts under Title 28 U.S.C., Section 1441.
When the petition for removal is granted, check this box.
Remanded from Appellate Court. (3) Check this box for cases remanded to the district court for further action. Use the date of remand as the filing
date.
Reinstated or Reopened. (4) Check this box for cases reinstated or reopened in the district court. Use the reopening date as the filing date.
