The lawsuit aims to stop Ring from using ADT’s octagon-like signs in its advertising.
The companies have competed since the 1870s, and the companies are constantly competing to gain customers. This has created a competitive atmosphere between the two companies. In February 2018, Ring began using a solid blue octagon in its advertising campaign. ADT countersued by requesting that Ring cease using its octagon-like signs and pay it unspecified damages.
The company filed the suit after Ring copied its lawn sign. Its blue octagon design is reminiscent of ADT’s logo, and the two companies have been competing since then. ADT has spent a large amount of time and money promoting its security offerings, so its lawsuit against Ring has a lot of legal precedents. While the two companies have yet to settle, it seems clear that the lawsuit will be a long one.

ADT started using a telegraph-based call box in 1874. In 2013, Ring developed a lighted yard sign with a blue octagon. ADT told Ring to stop using the blue octagon, but the company changed the color to red after ADT filed a lawsuit. While this may be a fair trade-off, it’s not a great one.

The company has since withdrawn from the suit and is working with the company to redesign the sign. ADT’s new Outdoor Siren incorporates the blue octagon sign.
In March 2016, ADT’s lawsuit against Ring was filed in federal court.

The lawsuit was initially a trademark infringement suit. ADT’s trademarks were similar to Ring’s, but a court decision may not be enough to make the octagon invalid. ADT claimed that Ring copied the ADT symbol in order to make the device profitable. It also accused Ring of violating the ADT’s trademarks by using its trademarks without permission. The ADT’s patents were issued to protect their brand.
