Brother wins tape cassette patent injunction against Aster Graphics

Brother wins tape cassette patent injunction against Aster Graphics

October 25, 2013

The injunction relates to infringement of tape cassettes for the OEM’s P-Touch label printers.gavel now

A press release from the OEM reported on the enforcement handed down by the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, based around the case from Brother against Aster Graphics that accused the latter of “infringing three United States patents covering [Brother’s] tape cassettes for its P-Touch label printers”.

The decision, taken in September, presents a permanent injunction against Aster Graphics, including its “subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents, servants, employees [and] successors”, which prevents the company from “making, using, selling or offering” for sale or importation in the USA label cassettes that infringe any of five different patents that Brother holds.

The injunction also forbids Aster from “otherwise directly infringing, contributory infringing, or inducing infringement” of the patents, as well as “assisting, aiding, or abetting any other person or business entity” in infringing the patents. The case is one of several taken against companies infringing on the P-Touch patents, with Brother accusing another company earlier this year of patent infringement.

Toshikazu Koike, President of Brother Industries, stated: “Brother Industries is committed to vigorously enforcing its patent rights in the United States and around the world, and Brother is pleased to have obtained a permanent injunction in this case.”
