Cease and Desist Order

I. Patent Infringement:

Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. www.neoterichovercraft.com is the owner of United States Patent No. 3887030 protecting an exclusive hovercraft design, titled the “Hovertrek™”, which features reverse thrust buckets. The design of the “Niaterek” hovercraft exhibited on the Air Wing website at http://airwing.ru/hovercrafts-models/four-seater-hovercraft-niaterek.html and manufactured and marketed by Air Wing consists of piracy of the patented Neoteric Hovercraft design. This counterfeit design was likely achieved through illegal splash molding of the Neoteric Hovertrek™ fiberglass body and hull.

As used herein, “piracy” is defined as “the unauthorized reproduction or use of a patented invention or trademarked product.”

Permission was neither asked nor granted for Air Wing to reproduce, modify, manufacture, market or sell the patented Neoteric Hovercraft design; therefore your product constitutes infringement of the proprietor’s legal patent.

Be advised that Air Wing and any or all additional entities involved in the infringing reproduction, manufacture, marketing and/or sales of hovercraft that are equipped with reverse thrust buckets or any other design, part or feature protected by United States Patent No. 3887030, are required to confirm to Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. in writing within ten (10) days of receipt of this Cease and Desist Order that:

1) You have ceased the reproduction, manufacture, marketing and sales of all Air Wing hovercraft pirated from the Neoteric Hovertrek™ design.

2) You agree to refrain from splash molding, reproducing, manufacturing, marketing or selling at any time in the future any hovercraft with reverse thrust buckets or any other part or feature that constitutes infringement upon the protective patents owned exclusively by Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc.

3) You have commenced a recall from the worldwide market all hovercraft previously sold that were pirated from the Neoteric Hovertrek™ design and constitute infringement upon the protective patents owned exclusively by Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc.

4) You shall submit to Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. a detailed list of the number of all products manufactured and sold by Air Wing and any of its subsidiaries that infringe upon the protective patents owned exclusively by Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc.

II. Trademark Infringement:

Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. is the legal owner of the trademarked business name, “Neoteric”, registered in Australia in 1973, as well as the trademarked product name “Hovertrek”.  Permission was neither asked nor granted for Air Wing to utilize any version of the Neoteric trademarks, therefore the use of “Niaterek”, “Neaterek”, “Neoteric”  and “Hovertrek” on airwing.ru and on YouTube constitutes infringement of the proprietor’s legal trademark.
Be advised that Air Wing is required to submit proof in writing to Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. within ten (10) days of receipt of this Cease and Desist Order that:

1. You have ceased the use of the name “Niaterek”, “Neaterek”, “Neoteric”, “Hovertrek” and any version of the Neoteric trademark in any and all instances in which it has been used, including on your hovercraft, your website, on YouTube and in any and all Air Wing marketing and advertising materials, online or in print.

2) You agree to refrain from utilizing the name “Niaterek”, “Neaterek”, “Neoteric”, “Hovertrek” or any modified version of the Neoteric trademarks at any time in the future.
