Lubricant Dispute Heats Up

New Jersey-based Johnson & Johnson filed suit March 17 against Des Moines, Iowa-based Qualis Inc. for allegedly infringing its trademark and patent for its popular K-Y warming lubricant product.

Johnson & Johnson asked the federal court to bar Qualis from producing or distributing personal lubricants with packaging that could be confused with that of the K-Y brand, alleging the confusion caused a drop in the product's sales.
