The suit claims infringement of two of Overland Storage’s US patents related to an automated media library
Overland Storage, a provider of data management and data protection solutions, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit on tape storage technologies in the US District Court for the Southern District of California.
The lawsuit names BDT AG and BDT-Solutions GmbH, both based in Germany, and BDT Products, based in Irvine, California as defendants.
The suit claims infringement of two of Overland Storage’s US patents related to an automated media library containing media elements; and an automated media library and retrieval system.
The complaint broadly claims infringement of BDT’s products, and it specifically identifies BDT’s FlexStor II product line as infringing on Overland Storage’s patents.
In its complaint, Overland Storage seeks to stop BDT and its related companies from using its patented technologies in the US in the future.
Overland Storage president and CEO Eric Kelly said that the company owe it to its shareholders and customers to protect the technology investments it has made throughout the years.
"We believe our technologies are one of the driving forces behind the demand for tape storage solutions today. Our patented technologies allow us and others to bring to market products and solutions that are more reliable, more secure and more efficient," Kelly said.
