WEST BERLIN, N.J.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Tax-Right, LLC (“Tax-Right”) has dismissed with prejudice its September 2012 patent infringement action against SICPA in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (Tax-Right v. SICPA, Civ. No. 3:12-CV-657). The lawsuit alleged that SICPA’s products and/or services for confirming MSA compliance infringe U.S. Patent No. 6,704,614 (“the ‘614 patent”).
The Court’s claim construction ruling, announced earlier this month, interpreted the ‘614 patent to apply to “customer order” verification systems.
Under the terms of the parties’ agreement, Tax-Right acknowledges that SICPA’s products and/or services do not infringe the ‘614 patent, and has granted SICPA a covenant not to sue SICPA under the ‘614 patent or not to promote the ‘614 patent as applying to MSA compliance.
