e-ImageData Files Patent-Infringement Lawsuit Against Konica Minolta
e-ImageData, which is based in Hartford, Wisconsin, and markets micrographic equipment, such as its ScanPro microfilm scanners, reports that that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued it a second U.S. Patent relating to its digital microform imaging technology (U.S. Patent No. 8,537,279). The patent covers technology used in e-ImageData’s ScanPro microform scanners used in libraries. The firm also announced that it’s filed a second-patent infringement lawsuit against Konica Minolta.
Last year e-ImageData filed a patent-infringement lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin against Konica Minolta, and two companies that sell digital microfilm scanners made by Konica Minolta, alleging infringement of its U.S. Patent 8,269,890. e-ImageData also that Konica Minolta’s SL1000 scanner also infringes upon its newly issued ‘279 Patent, and thus recently filed the suit against Konica Minolta, also in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin.
