DATASAT INC. FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST UNISYS

 DATASAT INC. FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST UNISYS
 SAN DIEGO, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Allegations of federal and


state antitrust law violations were listed in a lawsuit filed today in the United States District Court in San Diego by Datasat Inc. against Unisys Corp. (NYSE: UIS).
 San Diego-based Datasat Inc. alleges that Unisys has forced its mainframe computer customers to buy maintenance service contracts and certain equipment from Unisys by "tying" these goods and services to Unisys software which these customers need to run and service their computers. Datasat Inc., a third-party maintenance company (TPM), competes to service Unisys mainframe computers, resulting in savings to consumers.
 "We have attempted, without success, to convince Unisys to change its policies that prevent TPMs from servicing Unisys machines and selling used Unisys equipment," said Bruce DeBolt, Datasat's founder. "We are simply attempting to introduce fair and open competition on price and quality to markets that have been monopolized in the past."
 In a recent United States Supreme Court opinion, Kodak vs. Image Technical Services, the court upheld claims by TPMs alleging similar tying practices by Kodak.
 "We believe this opinion clearly supports our allegations that equipment manufacturers may not use these tactics to exclude TPMs from the market," said John Allcock, trial counsel and a partner at Gray, Cary, Ames & Frye.
