Alien Technology wins lawsuit against Avery

24
Jul '09
Alien Technology is pleased to announce positive outcomes related to patent infringement claims filed by Avery Dennison. In 2008, Avery Dennison filed suit against Alien in federal district court in Ohio asserting that Alien's manufacturing and testing processes infringe Avery Dennison's patents.

Following a reexamination request, the US Patent and Trademark Office rejected as invalid all claims of Avery Dennison's asserted manufacturing patents. In March 2009, a federal district court judge denied Avery Dennison's request for preliminary injunction against Alien. In June 2009, Avery Dennison's asserted testing patents were dismissed. The latest in a series of outcomes favorable to Alien occurred this week when the judge granted Alien's motion to stay the litigation involving Avery Dennison's asserted and now invalid manufacturing patents. Alien Technology respects intellectual property rights, but it is also prepared to defend itself against actions that lack merit. This latest outcome puts to rest any fear, uncertainty and doubt which may have been instilled in the marketplace.

Alien Technology's proprietary and patented Fluidic Self Assembly (FSA) and inlay Strap-attach production techniques have long been a hallmark of Alien Technology. These manufacturing processes and techniques are superb for stable, high volume inlay production and will be instrumental when the RFID market reaches higher volumes.

Alien Technology, a venture capital backed company, is a leading provider of UHF Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) products and services, including RFID Integrated Circuits (ICs), inlays, readers, and a comprehensive RFID educational curriculum.Alien's patented Fluidic Self Assembly (FSA) technology and related proprietary manufacturing processes are designed to enable the manufacture of high volume, low-cost RFID tags.
