Today, Intermec responds and counterclaims:
Intermec Technologies Corp. . . . on Wednesday filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware charging Symbol Technologies . . . with infringement of Intermec intellectual property related to key Intermec wireless access, terminal and software technologies. Symbol products infringe six Intermec patents, according to the lawsuit. . . .Prior post: Symbol Filed Patent Infringement Suit Against Intermec Relating to 802.11 (or Wi-Fi) Wireless Communication Standard Technologies (Mar. 12, 2005).
The patents cover: a coherent, integrated wireless data capture system capable of distributing data over a network; portable, battery-powered data processing devices capable of running a multi-tasking operating system; and handheld portable data capture devices with graphical user interfaces (GUI), the ability to accept handwritten information and the ability to process that information. . . .
Simultaneous with its suit to enforce its wireless access, terminal and software patents against Symbol, Intermec filed responses to the earlier Symbol claims, denying that Symbol had the legal right to terminate the laser scan engine supply agreement and asserting that Symbol wrongfully terminated that agreement.
