10:21 EDTVICRVicor says SynQor power converter claims held to be invalid
In a unanimous decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., on March 13 issued a ruling invalidating key claims of a power converter patent asserted by SynQor Inc. against Vicor Corporation (VICR) and Cisco Systems (CSCO) in litigation currently pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Reversing a decision of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the Federal Circuit agreed with Vicor that prior art anticipated certain claims of SynQor's 7,072,190 patent and ordered the USPTO to reconsider the obviousness of the remaining claims. Commenting on the decision, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Vicor's CEO, stated, "The Federal Circuit decision turns the tables on SynQor, which resorted to attacking competitors and customers with bogus intellectual property after failing in the marketplace with its inferior bus converters. As a company founded on innovation, Vicor respects legitimate IP interests of others. However, Vicor will confront abusive IP litigation where, as here, illegitimate claims are asserted to suppress competition from superior products known not to infringe." Vicor has asserted counterclaims against SynQor. In its counterclaims, Vicor seeks damages for unfair and deceptive trade practices and tortious interference engaged in by SynQor as part of its campaign to discourage customers from using Vicor's superior products so as to monopolize the bus converter market. Vicor will hold SynQor, and its principals, accountable for damages they have intentionally caused.
