Black-Owned Tech Firm Sues Kaiser Permanente For Finessing :mj3:

*Wireless wearable technology produced by Better Life Technologies Group


Nationwide — Better Life Technologies Group, Inc., a small African-American technology company focusing on wireless wearable technologies, has sued Kaiser Permanente for $50 million, claiming the medical giant stole its trade secrets on wearable medical devices and shared them with its competitors which in its view may have contributed to the birth of a $30 billion dollar industry which focuses on wireless-wearable wellness communications between physicians and patients. Better Life’s issued patent US 8,659,432 B2 covers human monitoring in aquatic environments and patient monitoring applications in hospitals and homes.

The Better Life Technologies Group claims in federal court that Kaiser developed wearable medical devices with other companies after signing a nondisclosure agreement with Better Life in 2012.

“On or about late 2016, plaintiff discovered that defendant had used plaintiff’s proprietary trade secrets to enter into business relationships with plaintiff’s competitors and had derived income from providing plaintiff’s trade secrets to plaintiff’s competitors and other unauthorized recipients,” the lawsuit states.

The trade secrets involved “a patent for technology for a wireless wearable device designed for patients suffering from diabetes, heart conditions, and other medical conditions which require monitoring,” Better Life says in the complaint.

Better Life representatives began speaking to Kaiser C-level Officers in 2011-2012 and had several meetings regarding their innovative Physician to Patient wireless-wearable communication technologies. Kaiser signed a Non-Compete Non-Disclosure agreement with Better Life’s sister company ViQUAL Medical promising not to share Better Life’s disclosed intellectual property and trade secrets. At the time, ViQUAL Medical was created to be a medical device division of Better Life Technologies Group, Inc., which received intellectual property from Better Life and created its own unique patent-pending technologies which still have patent-pending status. Better Life has developed technologies that are designed to monitor human ailments ranging from diabetes to cancer.

Better Life Technologies Group, Inc. has several prototypes of its intended technology but still seeks funding to get its products to market. The company had hoped that their work with Kaiser would successfully launch their technology and devices. Better Life was featured in the March 2017 issue of Essence Magazine, and has been interviewed by BET, local television Station KUSI and NBC. Better Life has had its technology endorsed by the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff’s Engineering Department. “One of our company’s objectives has always been to show the world that if the doors of diversity could open ever so slightly, the African-American science community has powerful technological developments that can have a huge impact on science and technology,” says George McKinney; CEO/Founder of Better Life Technologies Group.

They gonna make 500 million tho, so it's a write off for Kaiser. Should have made a tighter NDA, with severe sanctioning ability.

Not surprising. Most of these big companies aint innovative at all. They just copy whatever an up & coming company does & pay a fraction of the profits if they even sue

There is a lot going on here:
(1) cost of litigation - $50 mill is insufficient
(2) time of litigation
(3) if not openly "black owned" would Kaiser have done what was alleged?
(4) patent invalidation proceedings - costly
(5) why no black tech billionaire's? - creativity/innovation is not the issue.
etc

Bruh, I'm at work so I'm not gonna go in right now. But I'm developing an app & have been studying black inventors. It's sad we literally are responsible for damn near every major innovation to humanity. But alot were stolen due to being denied patents or just not taught to us. They rather us think our glass ceiling is entertaining or athletics. We had to innovate & create because we never had sh*t.

App developer? Same here. And yes, if you can find a way to get a cheap patent, go for it (usually very pricey). Also, you need those NDA’s on lock and you better not tell most people because those NDA’s are not really worth much.

no they see the big picture..if they sue Kaiser and win it basically says Kaiser illegally shared info with competitors. if competitors have your illegally used patented idea ( intellectual property) they owe you royalties.. Kaiser can't pay royalties because they didn't develop the product all they did was introduce an idea ( consultanting) that some one then took and developed into an actually property. once they prove those products are based on their idea thats when they become a billion dollar company
