Kim Kardashian's Company Sued For $100 Million For Patent Infringement

Kim Kardashian’s brand is nearly synonymous with the selfie — and if you’ve followed Kim at all over these last few years you’ve seen her endorsement of the LuMee light-up smartphone case.
Well, her company is being sued in connection with LuMee for allegedly infringing on a patent from a man who claims he invented it.
Read excerpts via TMZ:

Kim’s company … Kimsaprincess, Inc. got slapped with the suit Monday — a guy named Hooshmand Harooni says he got a patent back in 2013 for an “integrated lighting accessory and case for a mobile phone device.” If that sounds familiar, that’s because it’s a perfect description of the LuMee.
No doubt you’ve seen Kim flaunt the LuMee on her social media. She says it helps her take perfectly lit selfies — obviously, a major asset in her world. She even used it for her famous selfies with Hillary Clinton.
Problem is … Harooni licensed his invention to a company called Snaplight, which is now getting buried in sales. Snaplight and Harooni say LuMee jacked their patented technology, and made it an unfair fight by teaming up with a supreme trendsetter like Kim.
In the docs, Snaplight says Kim is getting a cut of LuMee’s sizable profits — and now it wants a chunk of that cheddar too. The company says $100 million will cover its lost profits.

To be clear — Kim isn’t being accused of stealing, LuMee is. Kim’s just making money from LuMee so therefore she’s been named in the lawsuit as well. We hope they work it out.
