Anoto secures summary judgement against City Soft Limited and one of its directors

Stockholm, March 11, 2019 – Anoto Group AB (Anoto) has secured summary judgement against City Soft Limited and one of its directors for infringing on Anoto’s intellectual property.

Anoto enlisted Humphries Kerstetter LLP to help secure the integrity of its distribution network when it learned that City Soft was using its intellectual property without authorisation. Anoto claimed in the proceedings amongst other things that City Soft infringed its copyright in using Anoto’s dot pattern technology and software development kits.

The Court sided with Anoto and granted declaratory and injunctive relief as well as an inquiry as to damages. The Court also awarded Anoto its costs up to the full level of the applicable caps in the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court.  

“This was an important strategic result for Anoto which makes clear that Anoto will take the steps necessary to prevent unlicensed use of our innovative technology and products and that the Court will protect Anoto’s rights in this regard”, says Joonhee Won, CEO of Anoto Group.
