Dyson accuses Samsung of vacuum cleaner 'rip-off'
UK firm says Samsung's Motion Sync vacuum cleaner used technology found in two Dyson appliances, the DC37 and DC39
 
Dyson is suing Samsung Electronics over claims that the South Korean company "ripped off" its vacuum cleaner technology.
 
The British engineering company, which also pioneered "blade" hand dryers, has accused Samsung of copying its technology in the steering system on its latest vacuum cleaner.
 
Dyson said Samsung's Motion Sync vacuum cleaner used technology found in two Dyson appliances, the DC37 and DC39, which have been on the market for two years.
 
"This looks like a cynical rip-off by the giant Korean company Samsung," said company founder, Sir James Dyson. "Although they are copying Dyson's patented technology, their machine is not the same. Samsung has many patent lawyers so I find it hard not to believe that this is a deliberate or utterly reckless infringement of our patent." Samsung dismissed the claims as "groundless".
 
Dyson launched proceedings in the high court at the end of August.
 
"We have been forced to issue proceedings in the English high court, but I would much rather invest in research to develop new technology than have to sue," said Dyson.
 
Dyson has taken out a patent on "a cleaning appliance with a steering mechanism" and claims that its invention makes vacuum cleaners easier to manoeuvre around furniture and less likely to topple over.
 
Samsung's marketing boasts that its Motion Sync design "enables exceptionally smooth and easy movement". A Samsung spokesperson said: "The Samsung Motion Sync is an outcome of our own extensive research and development.
 
"We will take all necessary measures, including legal actions, to protect our technological innovation against Dyson's groundless claims"
 
Dyson holds 3,000 patents and has been fiercely protective of its technology. In 2012, it accused German rival Bosch of planting a spy in its research lab

I think so, too. I mean, if you want a Dyson, get a Dyson. Get the real thing.

Most vacuums look similar...not exactly ripping anything off. As for the steering mechanism, samsungs could work completely differently from dysons. Dysons patent describes one way to do this, not all of them.

My aunt has a Dyson and it's pretty bad if you ask me. Sure it might have power but dear god that thing is really noisy.

 

We swear by Nilfisk in this house. Very powerful, remarkably quiet and a fantastic hypo-allergenic filter.

funny how people think powerful vacuums are the best and always run their vacuums at full power.

 

it's like they never look at the little pictures next to the power setting. High power is only for smooth wood floors. even then you maybe shouldn't use the highest setting on all vacuums. If the vacuums sticks when moving it, ie it sucks itself onto the surface you're on to high power. firstly you're making it hard to move, secondly, you're not actually vacuuming anything, as you're just creating a suction vacuum. it should be easy to move around, that way it will suck up what's under it AND suck in dust from around it.
