SiriusXM has had its share of spats with consumer advocate groups regarding marketing practices over the years. There have also been a handful of lawsuits centered around people receiving unwanted communications from the satellite radio provider, and suits complaing that SiriusXM is obtaining personal information about car buyers. This latest lawsuit takes the cake though — SiriusXM is being hauled into court for allegedly stealing the patented envelope design of CCAH.
You may not have heard of CCAH, but you have likely seen their envelopes. The company designs and markets their “Urgent Gram” envelops to many companies across the United States. Essentially it is an envelope designed to look very official. The official look of the envelope almost ensures that a greater number of people will actually open it. CCAH is a direct marketing powerhouse and over the past 7 years over 8 million “Urgent Gram” envelopes have been shipped.
