Carbonite Wins Non-Practicing Entity Patent Suit Against Oasis Research













BOSTON, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of cloud backup solutions for consumers and small businesses, announced today that it prevailed at trial in a non-practicing entity (NPE) patent suit brought by Oasis Research LLC, after a Texas federal jury concluded that Oasis' patents were invalid.

Oasis sued Carbonite and 17 other companies over four patents in August 2010. All of the defendants other than Carbonite and EMC Corp. settled or were dismissed before trial.

"We are very pleased with the outcome of the case and the jury's decision," said Danielle Sheer, Vice President and General Counsel of Carbonite.

"Verdicts like ours against NPEs are too few and far between," said David Friend, Chairman and CEO of Carbonite.  "Fortunately, in the realm of NPE litigation, the laws are changing and the courts are changing. We hope that verdicts like ours will serve to raise awareness of the issues surrounding intellectual property and NPEs."

Carbonite was represented by Matthew B. Lowrie and Kevin M. Littman of Foley & Lardner LLP, and by Andy Tindel, Attorney at Law. The case is Oasis Research LLC v. EMC Corp. et al., in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
