German Court Finds WG-Sensorsense GmbH Has Infringed a Key Sensormatic(R) Anti-Theft Tag


BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 12 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    A German appellate court recently found WG-Sensorsense GmbH has infringed a patent on the

Sensormatic SuperTag(R) technology. The court's ruling prohibits WG-Sensorsense GmbH from selling its

infringing SuperSensor and one-time-use hard tags from its German distribution facilities. The court will

determine damages after WG-Sensorsense accounts for its sales of those products. The company is also

responsible for legal costs incurred to bring the court case against them.

worldwide, and we remain committed to continually improving the anti-theft performance of our Sensormatic

technology to their benefit," said Scott Clements, vice president and general manager for the Sensormatic

rights against those who infringe our intellectual property."
