We are very pleased with today’s announcement from the International Trade Commission (ITC) regarding the patent infringement complaint Motorola filed against Verkada in 2021.
In October, an ITC judge ruled that none of our products infringe the patents that Motorola asserted in its complaint – except for one old software feature that we do not sell anymore.
Today, the ITC made two announcements:
It will not review any parts of the judge’s October ruling that Motorola asked them to review.
However, it will review, at our request, the part of the ruling which found that our old design infringes.
Given today’s announcement, the ITC’s final ruling on March 23, 2023 will either find that none of our technology (past or present) infringe Motorola’s patents or uphold the judge’s October ruling (that an old software design that we don’t sell any more infringes). No matter the ruling, there should continue to be no impact on our customers.
As always, we continue to be laser-focused on building best-in-class products that set a new standard for enterprise building security and have not allowed this suit to be a distraction.
