TOMI Environmental Solutions and Astro Pak Settle Lawsuit Concerning TOMI's Patents and IP Rights
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. and COSTA MESA, Calif., July 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. ("TOMI") (OTCQX:TOMZ) and Astro Pak Corporation ("Astro Pak") announced today they have settled their litigation relating to TOMI's patents and intellectual property rights.
The parties have agreed that TOMI is the sole owner of ionized hydrogen peroxide decontamination and sterilization technology, patents, and products, which TOMI markets under the brands Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT(TM)) and SteraMist(TM). TOMI sued Astro Pak and its wholly owned subsidiary SixLog Corporation ("SixLog") in California federal court for infringing TOMI's United States Patent Nos. 6,969,487 and 7,008,592 and violating TOMI's intellectual property rights by, among other things, indicating that TOMI's technology and patents were proprietary to SixLog and marketing TOMI's patented equipment with SixLog labels. Astro Pak and SixLog agreed to cease this conduct and pay TOMI a favorable cash payment. Astro Pak also agreed to assign its iHP mark to TOMI, complementing TOMI's existing trademark and trade name protection. Finally, Astro Pak and SixLog agreed to remove from the web or take steps to remove any assertions or suggestions that they own or developed ionized hydrogen peroxide technology or patents, or that they provide any ionized hydrogen peroxide products or services.
"TOMI's patents and technology are extremely valuable and ground-breaking, and TOMI is committed to protecting them and enforcing its IP rights," said Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI's CEO and Chairman. "This settlement will allow TOMI to focus all its energy and resources on innovation, on growing our business, and on making potential customers aware of the power of TOMI's technology."
"TOMI's patented technology is very powerful and has outstanding efficacy," said Ken Carroll, Astro Pak's President. "The company has a very bright future, and we wish them continued success."
