Ciba Specialty Chemicals Files Patent Infringement Suit Against RiTEK

Ciba Specialty Chemicals has filed a patent infringement suit in Germany and the Netherlands against RiTEK Corporation and its European subsidiaries Conrexx Technology B.V. (also known as Traxdata), RME Manufacturing GmbH, RiTEK Media Europe, and PrimeDisc Technologies GmbH.

Ciba claims that RiTEK and its named subsidiaries import and sell RiTEK-manufactured CD-R which infringe Ciba's patented CD-R dye technology. Ciba IRGAPHOR Ultragreen is globally recognized by the industry as the optical dye of choice for CD-R manufacturing known for high quality and consistency.

"We will not tolerate that our technology is illegally copied and counterfeit products are spread in the market. Therefore we are carefully and continuously monitoring the media market. We are prepared to vigorously defend our intellectual property and will not hesitate to take legal action against infringers", a Ciba spokesperson said.

Ciba Specialty Chemicals is a leading global company dedicated to producing high-value effects for its customers products. Ciba Specialty Chemicals is active in more than 120 countries around the world. In 2005, the Company generated sales of CHF 7.4 billion and invested over CHF 300 million in R&D.

Ritek has not responded to CDRinfo's request to comment on the news-story yet.
