Q.I. Press Controls wins first round in court vs Quad/Tech

Thursday, April 08, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Oosterhout - The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania ruled in favour of Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) and denied the Motion for Preliminary Injunction brought by Quad/Tech. That Motion alleged that the QIPC register control system sold in the United States under the mRC label (that is, the mRC+ with micro marks) infringed Quad/Tech U.S. Patent 5,412,577. The Court ruled in QIPC's favour and against Quad/Tech in all respects. The Order also denied Quad/Tech's many recently filed motions, including a motion in which Quad/Tech sought the Court's permission to add to its Complaint claims that the IDS (Intelligent Density System) and IRS (Intelligent Register System, which also uses registration marks)) allegedly infringed the patent at issue.

Menno Jansen Chairman of QIPC adds: "We are extremely happy with the court's ruling, because we have stated in our court papers that our register control products sold in the United States do not infringe Quad/Tech's patent.

We have stated the same thing with respect to the IDS. QIPC is a highly innovative company that respects the intellectual property of all companies. QIPC was the first company to release an intelligent register control system, which combined three (3) functions within one system, which to date operates at customer sites worldwide. QIPC's goal is to offer our customers the latest technology and remain a global leader with respect to innovative auxiliary equipment for the graphics industry."

QIPC is very pleased with all of these results, which QIPC believes is the first step to total vindication in the lawsuit.
