VIM Technologies Responds to Presstek’s ITC Complaint

Friday, April 11, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

April 10, 2008 - VIM Technologies Ltd. today responded sharply to the baseless complaint filed by Presstek, Inc. in the International Trade Commission (ITC). 

VIM's response points out in extensive detail why VIM's digital printing plates do not infringe Presstek's asserted patents.

VIM also explains how Presstek's patents are invalid and unenforceable, and should never have been asserted against VIM, in the first place.

Avigdor Bieber, founder and CEO of VIM, said "We are confident that the digital printing industry will see clearly that VIM has not infringed any of Presstek's patents; that the patents at issue are invalid and unenforceable, and will see through Presstek's regrettable act of bringing the ITC action for what it is: a bald attempt to intimidate printers in an effort to deprive them of their fundamental right to have multiple supplies of plates.

Regardless, VIM will continue to sell and provide its customers with a choice of better and more economical plates, a choice that the industry has deserved for many years. "

Mr.  Bieber added, "In light of VIM's firm response today to Presstek's complaint, digital printing companies should feel confident that they can continue to use VIM's digital plates without fear of Presstek or its invalid and unenforceable patents".

VIM is a leader in the field of digital printing plates and related imaging products that significantly increase the profitability of offset printing. By combining an innovative approach, state of the art technologies, and many years of research and development experience, VIM digital printing plates expand the profitability of digital press offerings by enabling higher quality output and capacity utilization in both short and long print runs.
