IOMEGA CORP. SYQUEST V. IOMEGA

 ROY, Utah, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Iomega Corp. (NASDAQ: IOMG) (IOMG) said that on July 27, 1993, Syquest Technology Inc. (SYQT) filed suit against it, Nomai S.A., the Mass Microsystems unit of Ramtek Corp. (RMTK), and Srinivasan Chari alleging copyright infringement in the manufacture and sale of disk cartridges for use with Syquest disk drives.
 After a review of Syquest's Complaint, Iomega is of the opinion that the Complaint is technically defective and should be dismissed. Also, since Syquest has failed to identify any registered copyrights it owns, it is unclear as to what the subject matter is that Syquest claims is protected by copyright.
 As for Syquest's press statement of July 28, 1993 that the European Patent Office will issue a patent on features of its 5.25-inch disk cartridges, Iomega believes that such patent, if issued, may be invalid and would not be infringed by the manufacture and sale of Nomai cartridges.
 Iomega Corp., Roy, develops, manufactures and sells high-performance removable mass storage products for desktop computers. Iomega's patented Bernoulli Technology provides unlimited data storage capability by combining the removability of floppy drives with the high capacity and performance of rigid drives. Iomega's common stock is listed on the NASDAQ National Market System under the symbol IOMG.
