BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- On December 8, 2023, Videray Technologies, Inc. (“Videray”) and Tek84, Inc. (“Tek84,” collectively, “Plaintiffs”) filed a lawsuit against Viken Detection Corp. (“Viken”) in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts to defend themselves against patent infringement allegations Viken raised through multiple demand letters directed to the Plaintiffs. In their complaint, the Plaintiffs seek declarations that they do not infringe on Viken’s patents and that those patents are invalid. Plaintiffs further allege Viken breached a prior settlement agreement between the parties. Civil Action No: 23-13035.

This is not the first time that Viken has accused Videray of violating its alleged intellectual property rights. Nearly four years ago, Viken—whose founder, Peter Rothschild had developed X-ray imaging technology with Videray’s founder, Paul Bradshaw—accused Bradshaw and Videray of “theft of trade secrets” relating to X-Ray imaging and detection technology. The parties settled that dispute and Videray and Tek84 contend that Viken broadly released Videray from related claims. Then, starting in June of 2022, Viken sent Videray and Tek84—a distributor of Videray’s products and one of its shareholders—multiple demand letters accusing them of infringing Viken’s patents.

Videray and Tek84 contend that Viken’s infringement allegations are meritless and, nevertheless, barred by the release Viken agreed to in the parties’ prior settlement agreement. As such, Plaintiffs contend that Viken breached that settlement agreement by rehashing its infringement allegations in violation of the release. Plaintiffs also contend that their products do not infringe Viken’s patents and that those patents are invalid. Videray and Tek84 intend to vigorously defend their rights. Viken has not yet answered the complaint.
