In Lawsuit, RAH Color Technologies Alleges Ricoh Infringed on its Color-Management Patents
On September 17th, RAH Color Technologies of Alexandria, Virginia, filed a lawsuit against Ricoh Americas in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, citing patent infringement of RAH’s color-management technology used in printers and cameras..
RAH Color Technologies owns numerous U.S. patents, and in the United States, develops and sells color-measurement and management printer and camera hardware and software.
According to RAH’s complaint, on October 20, 2014, it sent a letter to Ricoh offering it a license to RAH Color Technologies’ patented technology. RAH contends that after an initial confirmation of having received the information, Ricoh has still not responded to efforts to engage in licensing discussions. RAH alleges that multiple Ricoh products use RAH Color Technologies patents.
RAH is seeking a declaration that Ricoh infringed on its patents, as well as damages for the alleged infringement.
