Seagate files lawsuit against Storage Computer
Seagate Technology looks set to lock horns with storage rival Storage Computer Corporation (SCC) again, after Seagate filed a countersuit against SCC, alleging patent infringement.
The move is in response to an existing infringement suit in which SCC alleges infringement against Seagate and one of its subsidiaries, XIOtech. Both Seagate and XIOtech deny the charge.
In its latest action, Seagate claims that SCC's storage devices and software infringe Seagate's patent on error detection and correction systems in RAID systems.
William Hudson, Seagate's general counsel, claimed: "It is apparent that Storage Computer is using Seagate's intellectual property without authorisation, and filing this action should be a clear signal that Seagate intends to vigorously enforce its intellectual property rights."
