In true David vs Goliath form, Olaplex took on L’Oreal in court over a patent dispute.

Spoiler: David (Olaplex) won!

It is not uncommon to hear stories of big business smashing small companies by stealing ideas. Court is almost always futile because they have a lot more money than your average bootstrapping, garage inventor.

That is what makes a win like this, well, a true victory.

What does this mean for you?

It gives a little more power to small businesses and new inventors. This gives you a little more ammunition when battling big business during a dispute.

Having a legal win on the books of this magnitude will help inventors who have their patents stolen by a bigger company in the future. It is a case your lawyer can refer to in court. It shines a light on your rights.
