DataLase and ORBID Settle Patent Infringement Case

WIDNES, CHESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 3, 2008) - DataLase and ORBID have today agreed to settle the patent infringement case brought by ORBID against DataLase and FractureCode in the Netherlands relating to ORBID's patents on their 2DMI technology. Whilst ORBID will be continuing its case against FractureCode, it will withdraw the case against DataLase. John Mills, Managing Director of DataLase said: "Our co-operation with FractureCode had effectively ceased some months ago, and needless to say the ORBID Corporation lawsuit caught us by surprise. We had no idea that ORBID believes that FractureCode is infringing its patents, and we are happy to reassure ORBID that we will not be working with FractureCode again."
