BEDFORD, NH and BEIJING, CHINA --(Marketwired - January 04, 2016) - Segway Inc. ("Segway"), the world's leading provider of personal electric transportation, along with DEKA Products Limited Partnership and Ninebot (Tianjin) Technology Co., Ltd., ("Ninebot"), announced today that on December 23 they filed Complaints for Patent Infringement in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware against Swagway, LLC and Razor USA LLC. The Complaints allege that Swagway, LLC is infringing Segway's trademarks while both Razor USA LLC and Swagway, LLC are infringing several of DEKA's patents, which are licensed to Segway and Ninebot.

"In September, we filed a lawsuit against Inventist for patent infringement. This latest filing is a continuation of our commitment to vigorously protect our brand and products," said Brian Buccella, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "There is a tremendous amount of confusion in the market. Consumers are under the impression that the self-balancing products that have recently flooded the market and have received negative media coverage are manufactured and sold by Segway. Our brand's renowned reputation for quality and safety must be protected."
