Qingdao Volfoni-Rio Launches Lawsuit against GetD

Volfoni and Qingdao Volfoni-Rio today jointly announced that Volfoni’s manufacturing and sales partner in China, Qingdao Volfoni-Rio, has launched a lawsuit in the Shenzhen Court in China against the parent company of GetD for patent infringement on their triple beam 3D cinema products that GetD is currently manufacturing and selling.

The lawsuit, which was authorized by Volfoni, targets Shenzhen Future 3D Technology Limited, the owner of the GetD brand, for infringement of Volfoni’s China patent no. CN201320848220.0.

The lawsuit intends to prove infringement of Volfoni’s intellectual property rights, and further demand that GetD immediately cease the manufacturing and selling of their infringing products, and destroy all existing finished goods inventory.

“Volfoni is one of the leading innovators for 3D cinema technology systems. We have developed a strong portfolio of intellectual property, backed by an equally strong portfolio of global patents,” said Thierry Henkinet, Chief Executive Officer of Volfoni. “We do not welcome unlawful infringement of our patents, and we fully expect other companies to respect Volfoni’s intellectual property rights.”

This announcement follows the recent announcement of Freedeo filing lawsuits against GetD and Le-Vision in China.
