HoloTouch filed its first patent infringement complaint by suing Microsoft over HoloLens
Stamford, CT, November 9, 2017 – HoloTouch filed its first patent infringement complaint by suing Microsoft over HoloLens in the Southern District of New York.
HoloTouch, Inc.’s President, R. Douglas McPheters, announced: “Today we filed our first patent infringement complaint in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York. That complaint alleges Microsoft’s HoloLens infringes issued patents for our touchless, holographic human-machine interface technology. That complaint also alleges Microsoft’s “star of the show” product infringes our patents, apparently willfully because Microsoft has known about our patented technology for many years. Many other companies and devices in a wide variety of industries appear to also be infringing our patents.
Our company’s technology enjoys patent protection in a wide range of commercial markets by virtue of issued patents in Australia, Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States and a pending patent application in the European Union, the latter offering potential coverage in 28 EU member states.
Many businesses are using as well as making and selling products which involve interacting with holographic images of what would otherwise be keys or buttons of electronics or electro-mechanical devices to operate them. Without our consent, any of these activities violate our several issued patents and patents pending. In many cases, infringers of our patents have long been aware of our ownership and development of this technology, potentially subjecting them to enhanced damages in addition to regular penalties for patent infringement. Many infringers have signed confidentiality agreements with our company and been provided with in-person demonstrations of our innovative and fully tested technology.
Our company will vigorously pursue its statutory remedies against all who take advantage of our innovative technology without the compensation provided by law, particularly in light of current fascination with touchless, holographic controls and operation of devices using them across commercial spectra.
Additional complaints against others’ infringing patents protecting our innovative technology are being prepared.”
