Barco and KanexPro settle patent infringement dispute
Barco and KanexPro announced today that they have reached an agreement regarding alleged infringement of Barco's patents and other intellectual property rights.
In February 2017, a Dutch court authorized Barco to seize KanexPro’s MyTurn Wireless Presentation System at the trade show ISE in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Barco subsequently filed a lawsuit against KanexPro in the patent court of The Hague, the Netherlands, for infringing European Patent EP 2756668, and infringement of Barco's registered European Community Design with registration number 001312101-0001, both directed to Barco's ClickShare Presentation System. Barco also holds U.S. Patent Nos. 8,756,348 and D699241 covering the ClickShare System.
Under the agreement, KanexPro has agreed to cease the distribution and sale of its MyTurn Wireless Presentation System in Europe and the US.
