Sued Companies Deny Any Patent Wrongdoing
MANKATO, MN—Taylor Corp. is disputing the claims that its subsidiaries, 123Print Inc. and Drawing Board, infringed three patents held by VistaPrint. The patents relate to browser-based tools for online product design.
Gregory Jackson, CAO and general counsel for Taylor Corp., said the suit is without merit.
“Our companies have a 20-year history of assisting our customers with the implementation of e-commerce solutions, including Internet-based printing and print fulfillment,” Jackson said in a statement. “We provided our customers with these kinds of solutions well before VistaPrint even existed.”
In another lawsuit, Artwork Systems Group said it is looking into claims made by Markzware that Artwork’s Enfocus preflight products infringe upon a Markzware U.S. patent. Artwork Systems Group CEO Peter Denoo said the company would investigate “what appear to be unsupportable allegations made by Markzware.”
