The initial determination found that Hyosung does not infringe a third patent, but the products accused of infringing that patent are the same products as are found to infringe the magnetic-ink patent. Accordingly, the decision on the third patent does not affect the scope of the exclusion order that the Administrative Law Judge has recommended.
The Administrative Law Judge's decision is subject to review by the International Trade Commission. The Commission defers to the Judge's findings of fact in the case.
"Our company has built a strong patent portfolio, investing hundreds of millions of dollars in research and development, and has been granted numerous patents to protect that investment," said Leiken. "We are committed to protecting our interests in U.S. industry, as well as enforcing our intellectual property rights throughout our portfolio of solutions. Following the conclusion of the ITC proceedings, Diebold Nixdorf expects to seek significant damages in a jury trial in U.S. federal court for Hyosung's infringement activities."
