Visto Files Lawsuit Agains Good Technology on Push Email
Posted on 1-Feb-2006 09:21. | Tags Filed under: News.



Visto Corporation has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Good Technology. The suit, which alleges that Good’s products and services infringe on multiple patents held by Visto, was filed in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Texas.

“Visto’s commitment to providing our customers with world-class remote email and data access services depends on our ability to protect the intellectual property that we worked tirelessly to develop almost a decade ago,” said Brian A. Bogosian, Visto Chairman, CEO and President.

“By offering our service in 75 mobile phones through some of the world’s largest mobile phone carriers, Visto has established itself as a strong player in the mobile email market,” continued Bogosian. “We have made tremendous technological and financial investments since 1996 and we refuse to allow others to benefit freely from our hard work and commitment to innovation.”

“There are justifiable marketplace jitters about whether BlackBerry service will be shut down by a federal court next month,” noted Bogosian. “With Visto, all users, including BlackBerry users have a safe harbor alternative to RIM that offers protection from intellectual property risks. Good Technology, like other late entrants to this market, has no patents directed to wireless e-mail and very clearly infringes on our long-held intellectual property.”

Visto has recently initiated similar actions against Microsoft and its technology for direct push e-mail, built into Microsoft Exchange Servers and Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphones.

In the claim, Visto alleges that various Good Technology products, including GoodLink, their push email service, infringe on patents that Visto has held for the past nine years. The suit seeks a permanent injunction against GoodLink and Good’s other infringing technology, which can power several mobile devices including the Palm Treo, HP’s iPAQ hw6500, and the Motorola MPx220, among others.
