CAMPBELL, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/15/14 -- Inventergy, Inc. ("Inventergy"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Inventergy Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVT), has filed a patent complaint against Genband Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, where Genband is headquartered, alleging patent infringement of five U.S. patents from Inventergy's IMS and VoIP technology portfolio.
Inventergy defends the intellectual property rights developed by global technology leaders, enabling those companies to pursue further innovation. Inventergy is dedicated to streamlining IP rights licensing by working directly with companies deploying products and services covered by Inventergy's patents. However, if a company repeatedly refuses to participate in meaningful license discussions, Inventergy may need to, as in this case, seek court assistance, thereby properly defending its rights from unauthorized use by such an unwilling company.
"We attempted numerous times to engage in licensing discussions with Genband without success, unlike other companies who are engaged with us," said Joe Beyers, CEO. "It is unfortunate that we had to file this lawsuit, but it was necessary to protect our rights. Nevertheless, we are still open to working with Genband to resolve this matter through license discussions rather than protracted litigation."
"Our IMS and VoIP patent portfolio covers technology developed by two market and technology leaders in telecommunications systems," Beyers further noted, "and we believe it embodies important, valuable and enabling technology for others established in this industry."
