Fingerprint Cards files patent infringement complaint against Goodix
Fingerprints Cards today announced that it has filed a complaint with the Beijing Intellectual Property Court against Shenzhen Goodix Technology Co. and a distribution company, regarding infringement of one of Fingerprint Cards’ Chinese patents.
The Swedish biometrics company alleges that some of the fingerprint sensing chips sold by Shenzhen Goodix Technology Co. violate Fingerprint Cards’ patent, and is seeking compensation for damages as well as a cease and desist order to stop the marketing and sale of the fingerprint sensing chips in question.
“As a world-leading innovative company, we continuously file patents to protect our intellectual property,” stated Christian Fredrikson, President & CEO of Fingerprint Cards. “When our patents are infringed upon, we are determined to defend our interests and the interests of our shareholders.”
Last week Fingerprint Cards debuted an automotive industry compliant touch sensor.
