Rotolight has today begun high court proceedings against Vibesta B. V. and F&V Photographic Industry B.V. for alleged infringement of its intellectual property. The dispute has arisen over the release of the Vibesta Peragos Disk light, which looks remarkably like the Rotolight Neo 2 on first glance.
The Vibesta Peragos Disk was launched in the last couple of days, and several websites that had previously announced its launch have now taken those articles down. While there are a few differences in functionality between the two lights, there are some pretty obvious visual similarities, too. And those similarities don’t just extend to the product design. Vibesta appears to have used Rotolight’s own marketing images, too.
