ALI Products Do Not Infringe on SwimWays Patents

AVON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aqua-Leisure Industries, Inc. today announced that it would aggressively
fight the recent litigation filed by SwimWays Corporation. Aqua-Leisure,
an industry leader and pioneer in water sport leisure product
development since 1970, designs, manufacturers and brings to market
multiple lines of high quality performance-based products under a
variety of brand names and proprietary designs.

Aqua-Leisure CEO Steve Berenson stated, “Our designs are based on
rigorous market research, which includes channel assessment, consumer
insight, overall value, performance, quality and innovation.
Aqua-Leisure has many of its own patents and/or patents pending in the
United States Patent and Trademark Office, many of which counter the
claims of SwimWays.”

Aqua-Leisure’s products utilize a contemporary, wireless
design that allows the consumer to achieve maximum comfort and buoyancy
in a vastly different and better performing product. According to
SwimWays, its patents cover floats under the Spring Float® line, a
spring wire activated frame design for unfolding its devices.
Aqua-Leisure designs do not use any such
spring design.

SwimWays’ legal action comes on the heels of Aqua-Leisure winning
head-to-head product comparisons for overall performance and comfort.
According to Berenson, “We are confident that we will prevail in this
litigation in the same manner that we have prevailed in-market with our
high quality line of products.”

Aqua-Leisure has retained its long time legal counsel, Mintz, Levin,
Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo P.C., to represent it in this matter.
