GrayHair Software Wins Court Battle Against Patent Troll Regarding Intelligent Mail Barcodes
MT. LAUREL, NJ—May 12, 2014—GrayHair Software has been the last combatant standing in the mailing industry’s epic battle against a patent troll. After almost two years, it can now move forward in the use of the Intelligent Mail barcode (IMb) and can provide risk-free mail processing to its current and future clients. This agreement also indemnifies GrayHair’s clients against future claims of patent infringement. This is a result of the company’s uncompromising stance and powerful legal arguments.
GrayHair became the patent troll’s most stalwart opponent when two significant lawsuits stunned the mailing industry. The suits targeted well-known, reputable mail service providers, claiming infringement on patents applying to “generating, storing and processing mail identification data.” This refers to marks on a mailpiece (such as a QR code, an Intelligent Mail barcode or perhaps any future mail-enhancing technology) that link information from the barcode to a database for tracking purposes.
Everyone at GrayHair is as jubilant as they are relieved to announce that, going forward, all of its clients are protected from the patent troll threats. The company has successfully defended its values and secured permanent protection for all of its clients.
