Hsin Ten Enterprise USA Inc. v. Clark Enterprises, et al.
Mealey Publications

NEW YORK  - Jan. 8, 2001

The New York long-arm statute provides jurisdiction in federal court in Manhattan over a Kansas company named in a patent and trademark infringement action by a New York corporation, a federal judge ruled Dec. 29 (Hsin Ten Enterprise USA Inc. v. Clark Enterprises, et al., No. 00-5878 [SAS], S.D. N.Y.).

U.S. Judge Shira A. Scheindlin of the Southern District of New York refused to dismiss claims asserted by Hsin Ten Enterprise USA Inc. against Clark Enterprises Inc. However, the judge dismissed claims against Clark Enterprises proprietor Clifford Clark for lack of jurisdiction.

Judge Scheindlin based her jurisdictional findings on the sale of the allegedly infringing product through a website operated by Clark and available to New York residents.

Hsin Ten, a New York company, has the exclusive right to manufacture, use and sell aerobic exercise machines under two patents owned by Skylite Industry Ltd. Hsin Ten also sells an "electric massage apparatus" under the mark "The Chi Machine"; Hsin Ten owns the mark.

Clark Enterprises, a Kansas company owned by Clifford Clark, began selling a machine called "The Chi Exerciser 2000" in January 2000. Hsin Ten alleged that the machine infringes the Skylite patents and that its name infringes its trademark.
