7/1/2004 - AppForge, Inc., a worldwide leader in mobile development technology, announced that it has filed a copyright and trademark infringement lawsuit against Extended Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: XTND), in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.
AppForge's lawsuit asserts Extended Systems has knowingly used and distributed AppForge technology in its OneBridge Mobile product line without a license to do so. In addition, Extended Systems has also used AppForge’s trademarks in its advertising, marketing, and selling of OneBridge Mobile software without AppForge’s consent.
As part of this lawsuit, AppForge is seeking a permanent injunction that bars Extended Systems from making, using, importing, offering to sell, or selling the allegedly infringing products. AppForge is also asking the Court for an award of damages for Extended Systems’ unfair competitive acts.
“Our entire product line and business model is centered on providing technologies to companies who offer applications and services in this increasingly diverse mobile world,” said Gary Warren, AppForge’s Chairman and CEO. “We have invested many years and substantial capital developing AppForge’s technology, intellectual capital, and brand, and we will not allow companies to use those without the appropriate license agreements and compensation.”
