    Static Control Files Suit Against Future Graphics
    JAN
    07,Static Control Components Inc. has filed suit against
    California-based Future Graphics, LLC.   The lawsuit filed, in Federal
    Court, alleges universal chips sold by Future Graphics for use on
    remanufactured cartridges infringed one of SCC’s patents.“We spend an
    enormous amount of money to stay on the cutting edge of technology,”
    said SCC CEO Ed Swartz.   “We have some of the best chip engineers in
    the world who work diligently to stay ahead of the latest technology;
    technology that we will vigorously defend.”The patent, US Patent No.
    7,088,928 issued by the United States Patent & Trademark Office to
    SCC on August 8, 2006, was for a universal chip that can be commonly
    used in different printers.  “We have not authorized or licensed any of
    the chip technology to Future Graphics,” said SCC General Counsel
    William “Skip” London.   “We are seeking lost profits, reasonable
    royalties as well as injunctive relief against Future Graphics.”

    Future Graphics Asserts SCC Suit Has No Merit
    On
    January 3, 2007, Static Control Components, Inc. filed a suit against
    Future Graphics, LLC, alleging that universal chips sold by Future
    Graphics, LLC infringed one of SCC’s patents.Future Graphics vigorously
    asserts that there is no merit to this allegation. Future Graphics will
    aggressively defend itself against these claims and will continue to
    provide comprehensive solutions to the marketplace.“We have proven to
    the market that we provide industry leading products, support and
    solutions,” said Bryan Bonacum, VP sales, Future Graphics. “Our
    extraordinary growth will not be stifled by these types of actions by
    SCC. This is yet another tactic by our competitor to suppress fair
    competition and to sow dissent in the industry. We prefer to let our
    products and services determine our success in the marketplace.”“SCC
    has filed three lawsuits against FG in the last 12 months which
    demonstrates that SCC prefers to fight its battles in the courts rather
    than the marketplace,” said Luke Goldberg, Senior VP, Future Graphics.
    “One of the lawsuits is to prevent one of their former employees from
    working at Future Graphics after they laid him off. The infringement
    suit contradicts SCC’s self-anointed stance as protectors in the market
    against OEMs. This lawsuit only works in the favor of the OEMS. We
    strongly believe that our industry remains vital when its leaders do
    not engage in such divisive actions.”
