Stamford, CT (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
WhitServe has filed suit in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland (C/A No. 8:10-cv-01639-RWT) against customers of Computer Packages Inc.’s (“CPi”) EARS products. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit recently affirmed CPi’s Desktop EARS, Hosted EARS, TERMS, CPi Online and PMS products (“CPi Products”) willfully infringe four valid U.S. Patents owned by WhitServe LLC. See WhitServe LLC v. Computer Packages, Inc., No. 2011-1206 (Fed. Cir. Aug. 20, 2012).
“The continued use of any of these CPi Products could subject CPi customers to significant liability as well as the threat of a permanent injunction, and because of the willful nature of CPi’s infringement, it may not be possible for any customer liability to be reimbursed by indemnification or insurance,” said WhitServe Managing Member, Wes Whitmyer, Jr.
For this reason, WhitServe is prepared to grant a complete release to any CPi customer willing to stop using the CPi Products and sign a contract with WhitServe’s subsidiary NetDocket LLC (see netdocket.com) for IP renewal services.
In addition, WhitServe is willing to grant licenses for past infringement directly to any CPi customers wishing to transfer their IP renewal business from CPi to a WhitServe Licensee. This gives CPi customers a second option to eliminate risk of either liability or a permanent injunction for continued use of the CPi Products. You may contact WhitServe at 415-937-0253 or whitserve(at)gmail(dot)com to discuss obtaining a license.
The patents willfully infringed by CPi are:
5,895,468 System For Automating Delivery Of Professional Services;
6,049,801 Web Site Providing Professional Services;
6,182,078 System For Delivering Professional Services Over The Internet; and
6,981,007 Onsite Backup For Internet-Based Data Processing.
