Nike Inc. sued Lululemon Athletica Inc. claiming its Mirror Home Gym and mobile app infringes its patents for digital home exercise equipment.

The Nike suit is the latest in the thriving home fitness industry, where companies are turning to the courts to protect their own products from competition while expanding into new lines of business. Lululemon, once solely a yogawear company, acquired startup Mirror for $500 million in 2020.
