Toyota Infringement of Antonov Hybrid Technology Patents Alleged
ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands, Sept. 19, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- An infringement action has been filed against Toyota by Antonov Automotive Technology BV (a wholly owned subsidiary of Antonov plc), the automotive technology company, at the Patent Court in Dusseldorf alleging infringement of its patents by the driveline of the Toyota Prius and Lexus RX400h. The case will receive its first hearing on the 22nd September 2005. The action was originally filed on the 12th April 2005, but the first hearing date was postponed to allow more time for negotiations to seek a satisfactory settlement. As the offer received is not satisfactory, no settlement has been reached and Antonov will proceed with the case. Through the case Antonov aims to establish the infringement and seek fair payment for the use of Antonov's intellectual property in all relevant vehicles sold to date and for those that will be sold through to the expiry of the patents.Antonov CEO, John Moore commented, "Whilst we would have preferred to reach a mutually acceptable outcome with Toyota without recourse to the courts, I am confident in the strength of our case. The strategy of pursuing the initial case in Germany ensures we can obtain a binding legal opinion at a cost that does not impact on our ability to pursue our other strategic goals."
