CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for
communications networks, has moved to protect its valuable intellectual
property assets by bringing legal action against BoreFlex Industries of
Mountain Grove, Missouri, for patent infringement.
The lawsuit, filed September 21 in the US District Court for the Middle
District of Georgia, asserts that BoreFlex infringes US Patent No.
7,279,643, a CommScope patent that covers various improvements to
toneable conduit with an embedded wire to carry a signal for detection
by toning equipment.
“CommScope’s extensive portfolio of patents and intellectual property is
a lifeblood of the company and core to the innovation we deliver to
customers around the world,” said Ric Johnsen, senior vice president and
general manager, Broadband Solutions, CommScope. “We will vigorously
protect these valuable assets at all times.”
CommScope’s lawsuit seeks an injunction barring future sales of
BoreFlex’s toneable conduit products and damages for past infringement.
