Large Computer Company Files Infringement Suit

The world’s largest computer disk drive maker, Seagate Technology, has filed a patent infringement suit against the company STEC Inc, a maker of flash-memory storage products. STEC stands accused of infringing four patents that Seagate and its Maxtor unit hold, the company said in a statement. STEC said it was one of the first companies to build solid state drives as early as 1994, and it held such technology including prior patents, dating more than a decade prior to any of Seagate’s patents. Besides seeking an injunction to stop infringement of its patents, Seagate also seeks unspecified damages, which it says should be tripled if STEC is found guilty of wilfully infringing Seagate’s patents
