/EINPresswire.com/ Xerafy, Ltd. rejects Omni-ID USA’s allegations of patent infringement. Xerafy considers these claims totally unfounded and spurious.

Following comprehensive analysis by independent RFID technology experts, Xerafy is very confident that its RFID tags do not infringe on either of Omni-ID USA’s patents. Xerafy reached this conclusion after engaging with independent technology and IP experts to review the claims made by Omni-ID USA and conducting a thorough examination of Xerafy product portfolio against the complaint.

Omni-ID USA filed a lawsuit against Xerafy that makes general claims about product designs and reading methods that are inaccurate. Xerafy will vigorously defend the suit. Xerafy has successfully defended erroneous claims made by other companies before, and those disputes ended with the other companies withdrawing their inaccurate positions. Xerafy will continue to defend its rights and it reputation, and to contest any false or misleading claims about the company.

“We are extremely confident on our intellectual property position, and should this matter go to court, we are very confident we will prevail,” said Xerafy founder and CEO Dennis Khoo. “There is absolutely no basis for Xerafy to pay any royalties, licensing fees or penalties to Omni-ID USA, and we will continue to resist Omni-ID USA’s pressure to do so.”

Xerafy conducted numerous discussions and meetings with Omni-ID USA prior to the lawsuit being filed to understand the basis for the infringement allegations as well as the technical points at issue. During that time, Omni-ID USA insisted that Xerafy join Omni-ID USA’s technology licensing program and pay royalties for Xerafy’s entire product portfolio. However, Omni-ID USA failed to demonstrate that any Xerafy products infringed its patents. Xerafy is fully convinced it does not infringe, and that Omni-ID USA has no rights to revenues from the sale of any Xerafy products.

Omni-ID USA claims many on-metal RFID products being sold today are covered by its patents. Xerafy believes the patent litigation filed against it is being used to build support for Omni’s licensing program.

Xerafy has earned its reputation as an innovator in the RFID industry, and that reputation has been backed up by the standards, awards, certifications and other independent recognition the company has received. Xerafy has been widely credited for being the first to introduce a UHF RFID metal embeddable tag, the world’s smallest UHF on-metal tag, and the industry’s first true UHF RFID inlay designed for tracking metal assets. In the past year alone Xerafy has won several product development and innovation awards, achieved ISO 9001:2008 manufacturing quality certification, doubled production capacity and continued to add customers and partners around the world.
