Kortrijk, Belgium, 5 February 2019 – A Dutch judge has granted Barco’s petition to seize the wireless presentation system of Clevertouch, on show at Integrated Systems Expo in Amsterdam.
Today, at the opening of ISE, a bailiff approached the booth of UK-based Clevertouch to seize its Clevershare button and receiver so Barco can use it as evidence in patent infringement lawsuits in the Netherlands, the UK and other jurisdictions where Clevertouch sells its Clevershare button and receiver.
In April 2012, Barco launched ClickShare, a game-changing meeting room technology that enhances meeting efficiency and better decision making. The unique wireless presentation and collaboration system allows any meeting participant to share content on the central meeting room screen with the use of ClickShare buttons.
Barco has secured a strong portfolio of both model and utility patents which it consistently enforces against competitors seeking to copy Barco’s patented technology. Recently, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has declined a reexamination request filed by an undisclosed party, and has upheld Barco’s ClickShare patent. As a result of Barco’s enforcement actions across various jurisdictions, more and more distributors agree to cease the sale of wireless presentation systems which Barco believes infringe its ClickShare patent portfolio.
