SEAGATE FILES PATENT LAWSUIT AGAINST STORAGE COMPUTER CORP.
"It is apparent that Storage Computer is using Seagate's intellectual property without authorization," said William Hudson, Seagate General Counsel. "And filing this action should be a clear signal that Seagate intends to vigorously enforce its intellectual property rights."
Seagate filed this action as a counterclaim to an existing infringement suit in which Storage Computer alleges infringement against Seagate and XIOtech Corporation, a member of the Seagate family of companies. While XIOtech and Seagate have denied any infringement of Storage Computer's patent, Seagate's counterclaim seeks injunctive relief, damages and legal costs arising from Storage Computer's alleged infringement of Seagate's invention.
