PHOENIX & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Modavox, Inc. (OTCBB:MDVX - News), an Internet broadcasting pioneer in the production and syndication of online audio and video, announced today that it has filed a lawsuit against Tacoda, Inc. in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Case No. 07 CV 7088). In the suit, Modavox asserts its claim that Tacoda is infringing on United States Patent No. 6,594,691, “Method and System for Adding Function to a Web Page,” and may soon issue claims from at least one additional patent. Modavox is seeking injunctive relief and as yet unspecified damages stemming from Tacoda’s infringing activities.
This suit against Tacoda is the first step in a potentially wide-reaching campaign designed to enforce Modavox’s proprietary rights to its groundbreaking technology and to advance Modavox to its rightful place in the industry. Modavox intends to utilize its increasing business resources to further expand its ongoing analyses of activity within the industry, including identifying additional potential infringers of its expanding patented intellectual property portfolio.
"Modavox's commitment to innovation has yielded highly valuable patented intellectual property. Our management team, in conjunction with Fox Rothschild LLP, made a strategic business decision to design, create and execute a comprehensive plan in support of our patented process and technologies," said David Ide, CEO at Modavox. "We knew that decision would likely include pursuing enforcement through the legal system, and we are confident that the action we have taken today is an appropriate step on behalf of our shareholders and believe it will allow us to begin to reveal the true value of our patented intellectual property.”
