InternetNZ receives patent report

InternetNZ has received a legal report on DE Technologies' patent claim against New Zealand e-commerce developers and retailers, and has circulated it among some of the affected parties.

InternetNZ has received a legal report on DE Technologies’ patent claim against New Zealand e-commerce developers and retailers, and has circulated it among some of the affected parties.

Vice-president David Farrar sent the report to members of a mailing list, asking that the contents of the report be kept confidential so as not to assist DE Technologies. The North American company has written letters to some developers and e-tailers alleging patent infringement and seeking licensing fees.

The 11-page report was produced by AJ Park, a law firm specialising in intellectual property issues. Among its topics are the range of DE Technologies’ patent, including what it does not cover; possible defences; and the options open to those who have been accused of infringement.

A second section is devoted to the current state of New Zealand patent law.

Farrar says InternetNZ will be discussing further whether to make the report public.
