OpticSale Comments on Status of Litigation

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) -  OpticSale, a premier dealer of sports optics and binoculars, has been notified by their attorneys, Sullivan and Associates, LLC (a commercial litigation boutique), of an important milestone in their pending legal action with OpticsPlanet. Yesterday morning, the Honorable Milton I. Shadur issued an Order denying OpticsPlanet's motion for preliminary injunction and other injunctive relief. In addition, in response to OpticSale's motion for preliminary injunction, OpticsPlanet has been ordered by Judge Shadur to turn over possession of the domain names: www.opticssale.com and www.optic-sale.com, as well as any other similar domains, to OpticSale.com.

OpticSale executive, Ilya Beyrak, stated that this ruling serves as a "clear indication that an aggressive strategy in litigation has served to protect our business and sports optics interests." Furthermore, OpticsPlanet must now carry a disclaimer on their website informing the public of its litigation with OpticSale, and AKYR Enterprises, ensuring that further confusion between the two companies does not occur. Mr. Beyrak went on to say that he is now "somewhat comfortable" that OpticsPlanet "will no longer be able to produce confusion through misleading domain names in efforts to attract customers to their site."

OpticSale originally launched its site www.opticsale.com in 2004 with the intention of becoming a leader in supplying the country with their optics, hunting, and other outdoor products. OpticSale.com has since grown and expanded its market to cover both military and tactical products while continuing to specialize in Optics such as binoculars, rifle scopes, spotting scopes, and other optic accessories.

OpticSale.com, and parent company, AKYR Enterprises Inc., are headquartered in Chicago. For further information regarding this release, please contact Alex Goldman at 847-962-4933 (alexg@opticsale.com), or Ken Sullivan, counsel for OpticSale, at 312-499-3797.
