Mathews Wins Major Lawsuit Against Bowtech

Two years ago, Mathews Archery filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Bowtech Archery. On March 2nd, 2020, Mathews won that lawsuit, after six years of attempting to reach a fair, private resolution with Bowtech. Bowtech has agreed to a confidential financial settlement after admitting that 42 of its Bowtech and Diamond branded bows infringe on 24 MCP IP patents. The Deadlock Lite Octane Quiver was also included in the lawsuit and found to be infringe on MCP IP patents. 

Going forward, Bowtech has agreed to license certain MCP IP patents. The infringing bows include currently available models as well as past models dating back to at least 2011. Mathew McPherson, founder and CEO of Mathews Archery, wrote in a letter to retailers, "At Mathews, we take pride in the inventions developed and integrated into our products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others. The MCP IP patent portfolio, which includes the 24 patents mentioned above, protects the innovative technology brought to market in bows and accessories from Mathews Archery and Mission Archery. We stand behind our products and retailers, working hard to deliver the ultimate archery experience for our customers." You can read the full text of the letter below.
