IDT Subsidiary Sues To Defend Key Patents

IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT) today said that its technology licensing subsidiary, Innovative Communications Technologies, Inc. (ICTI), has filed complaints in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia against Stalker Software, Inc. (d/b/a CommuniGate Systems, Inc.), ooVoo, LLC, and Vivox, Inc. claiming infringement of a number of its key patents. ICTI seeks both damages and injunctive relief from the defendants.

"We believe that ICTI’s patented technology is being improperly exploited by many companies, including these defendants. These actions are the first steps in a broader campaign to protect these valuable intellectual property assets," said Howard Jonas, Chairman and CEO of IDT.

“The patents that are the subject of these lawsuits have been carefully and extensively re-examined by the US Patent and Trademark Office and the patentability of the claims has been confirmed," Mr. Jonas noted.
