    RICOH FILES U.S. PATENT INFRINGEMENT LAWSUIT AGAINST OKI-DATA
    Ricoh
    Company, Ltd. (Shiro Kondo, President and CEO. Hereafter “Ricoh”),
    Ricoh Americas Corporation, Ricoh’s managing sales company in the
    United States (Kazuo Togashi, CEO. Hereafter “RAC”), and Ricoh
    Electronics, Inc., Ricoh’s manufacturing company in the United States
    (Yoshinori Yamashita, President) filed a complaint with the United
    States International Trade Commission on September 18, 2009 (U.S. EST)
    against Oki Data Corporation (hereafter “Oki Data”) and Oki Data
    Americas, Inc. (Oki Data’s United States subsidiary) for violation of
    Section 337 of the United States Tariff Act of 1930.

    Among other
    things, Ricoh seeks an exclusion order from the ITC barring Oki Data’s
    importation of Oki Data products that practice certain United States
    patents owned by Ricoh. Further, on the same day, Ricoh and RAC filed a
    complaint in the United States District Court for the District of
    Delaware (State of Delaware) against Oki Data and Oki Data Americas,
    Inc. for infringement of other United States patents owned by Ricoh.
    Together, the lawsuits concern eight United States patents that cover
    products including digital multifunction printers (MFP) and printers.

    Since
    April of 2006, Ricoh and Oki Data have been negotiating for the renewal
    of a patent license agreement between the two companies. Because the
    companies have been unable to reach an agreement, Ricoh is taking
    necessary action to protect its intellectual property against
    unauthorized use. Ricoh respects the intellectual property rights of
    others, and expects the same treatment in return.
