The allegations of plaintiff Campbell Pet Company concerning personal jurisdiction, which the district court accepted as true for purposes of its jurisdictional ruling, are the following: Campbell is a company located in Vancouver, Washington, that manufactures and sells pet accessories and products, including mobile folding stretchers for transporting injured animals. Defendant Ty-Lift Enterprises is a California corporation that is wholly owned by defendant Theresa Miale and her mother. The company sells mobile stretchers for transporting injured animals, including the Ty-Lift I model folding animal stretcher. Two U.S. patents owned by Ms. Miale, U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,199,508, and 6,230,662, relate to the Ty-Lift I stretcher. Ty-Lift operates a website on the Internet where it advertises its products and where customers can purchase them. It also makes sales through means other than its Internet site.Campbell Pet, founded in 1984 and located in Vancouver, Wash., provides products for pets. It offers various products to veterinarians and animal service agencies. Products offered by the company include stout and fat leashs, pick-up tethers, dog leashes, nylon, pet and adjustable collars, ladderlocks and Camloc. Campbell Pet also products, including Puppy Kong, Kong jump and jack, dental... In this case, the district court erred by characterizing Ms. Miale's actions at the June 2007 convention as constituting nothing more than attempts to inform Campbell of suspected infringement. As Campbell points out, its employees' affidavits assert that Ms. Miale did more at the trade show than simply inform Campbell that its animal stretchers might infringe her patents. The affidavits state that Ms. Miale attempted to have Campbell's allegedly infringing products removed from the convention and that she told Campbell's customers that Campbell's products were infringing. Of critical importance to the issue of personal jurisdiction, Ms. Miale's attempts at “extra-judicial patent enforcement” were targeted at Campbell's business activities in Washington and can fairly be characterized as attempts to limit competition from Campbell at the Seattle convention. Those efforts go beyond simply informing the accused infringer of the patentee's allegations of infringement.Campbell Pet Company began decades ago with a simple idea: passionately create and sell quality products that are useful, humane, and practical for the animals we all love. The company's founder, Sam Campbell, has invented many products for veterinarians and technicians. Thousands of professionals safely care for pets with the company's humane snappy snares, pole syringes, squeeze cages, and ez-nabbers.
