Speck has been granted a patent for the company’s groundbreaking CandyShell case, which was originally released in 2009, and followed up with numerous sequels since then. The patent is for a device case with a flexible inner layer, hard exterior layer, and adjoining side surfaces, joined together to form a one-piece housing. This design was at one point considered impossible to manufacture, but has since been widely copied by other case makers, who may be forced to start making modifications in light of Speck’s patent.

I wonder if Speck will start lawsuits against others, like PureGear, since PureGear is owned by Superior Communications, and they do distribution of Speck products. But anyway, Speck CandyShell is the best.
