Da Vinci Partners files lawsuit against Kili Technology over alleged trademark infringement by Gen AI Tool ‘davinci’

On Thursday, Kili Technology Inc., a French-American AI startup known for creating davinci, an AI-powered copilot for drafting patents and office action answers, faced a lawsuit for trademark infringement and unfair competition. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas by Da Vinci Partners LLC, a Swiss patent and trademark law firm, and its founder, John Brent Moetteli. The claims in the lawsuit were made under the Lanham Act and Texas common law.

The complaint stated that the plaintiffs have held U.S. federal trademark registrations for DA VINCI and DA VINCI DESIGNS since 2010 and 1996, respectively. They have been running a business focused on providing information to others about patents, the patent process, inventing, and innovative design and engineering.

It was alleged that Kili Technology Inc.’s use of the trademark davinci for their AI-powered copilot infringed upon the plaintiffs’ trademarks and caused unfair competition in the market. The plaintiffs sought damages for the unauthorized use of their trademarks and requested that Kili Technology Inc. cease using the davinci trademark.

The lawsuit highlighted the importance of protecting intellectual property rights and preventing companies from unlawfully using trademarks that belong to others. It also demonstrated the potential legal consequences of trademark infringement and unfair competition in the business world.
