Tulsa, Oklahoma, March 1, 2023 — Alert 360 Opco, Inc., (“Alert 360”) one of the nation’s largest providers of residential and commercial security has filed a complaint in the Northern District of Oklahoma against Vivint Smart Home, Inc (“Vivint”), a Utah based company, for unfair competition in violation of The Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1125, Trademark Infringement and Unfair Competition.
As part of its case, Alert 360 has provided evidence of numerous instances of Vivint targeting Alert 360 customers by saying Vivint has become Alert 360, has purchased Alert 360, was sent on behalf of Alert 360, or that Alert 360 has gone out of business, as a few examples “We have amicably tried to resolve these issues with Vivint for many years to no avail. We have no choice other than to put these issues in the hands of a jury and the judicial system and look forward to presenting our case,” said Richard Ginsburg, Alert 360’s Chief Executive Officer.
Alert 360 has a dedicated web page with information and a link to report deceptive sales practices for consumers concerned about sales scams in the security industry or who worry they have been victimized. The Better Business Bureau is also a great resource.
Alert 360 is represented by Charles C. Eblen of Shook, Hardy & Bacon, LLP.
