Minelab Electronics PTY LTD (the plaintiff) lodged a complaint against XP Detectors (the defendant) in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, on October 19, 2016.

Minelab claims XP Detectors infringed a patent. At least one aspect (a feature?) of the plaintiff's patent has been implemented in XP's machines.

So, Minelab is seeking reimbursement to its business - court injunction on XP's detectors, damages (during the whole period of XP's existence?), interest, court costs. The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, case No.2: 16-CV-01594-MRH.

And now let me know your thoughts on this... What feature do XP detectors have that could have been borrowed from Minelab's machines? Maybe we should also establish a prize to award a person who'll guess it? (at the defendant's expense, of course).
