VIM Will Defend Itself Against Presstek's ITC Complaint
Press release from the issuing company
February 12, 2008 - VIM Technologies Ltd. today announced its intention to vigorously defend itself and its distributors against the baseless complaint filed by Presstek, Inc. in the International Trade Commission (ITC). Avigdor Bieber, founder and CEO of VIM, stated, "As intellectual property holders, VIM respects intellectual property rights of others. However, we are confident that we do not infringe any of Presstek's patents, and are certain the ITC will reach the same conclusion. We will vigorously defend ourselves from Presstek's meritless claims. It's regrettable that Presstek would turn to the ITC instead of trying to compete with us fairly in the marketplace."
Mr. Bieber added, "VIM's digital plates are already welcomed and selected by a continuously growing number of printers for their quality and competitive pricing. VIM's digital plates finally enable printers to return to profitable use of their digital presses. We trust that the digital printing industry will not accept Presstek's attempt to restrain supply alternatives and will continue using the VIM plates."
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.
