MALMESBURY-based vacuum cleaner company Dyson is taking High Court legal action against Samsung, accusing the South Korean firm of copying the steering mechanism on two of its models.
Dyson claims the steering on Samsung’s new MotionSnc range is a direct copy of the DC37 and 39 models launched last year.
Founder James Dyson accused the firm of a “cynical rip off.”
It will be the second time the two companies have faced each other in court. Four years ago Samsung was ordered to pay almost £600,000 after it tried to a patent triple cyclone suction system that Dyson had already invented and patented.
