Venice, FL, June 03, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- On June 1, 2010, the Federal District Court, District of Minnesota (Case No. 09-cv-02767) granted Freeland Systems’ request to file a claim for copyright infringement against Kardia Health Systems, a Minnesota Corporation partially funded by Mayo Medical Ventures, and its President Doug Marinaro. Freeland Systems’ copyright allegations were filed June 2, 2010.
In May 2008, Freeland Systems sold its assets, including the AccessPoint product line, to Kardia Health Systems. Kardia defaulted on payment due to Freeland Systems in 2009, and in March 2010 Freeland Systems held a public foreclosure sale of certain assets, including certain AccessPoint software and copyrights. At this public sale, Freeland Systems purchased the copyrights to all software and technology developed and existing prior to the 2008 asset sale to Kardia Health Systems.
In its copyright infringement claim, Freeland Systems alleges that Kardia Health Systems and its President, Doug Marinaro are infringing Freeland Systems’ copyrights by engaging in the creation, display, distribution, and publication of derivative works based on the foreclosed-upon copyrights. In the Federal Court action, Freeland Systems is seeking an injunction prohibiting further alleged acts of infringement, impoundment of all materials in Kardia’s possession that allegedly infringe Freeland Systems’ copyrights and damages in the amount of up to $150,000 per alleged infringing act.
According to John Freeland, Managing Partner of Freeland Systems, “Freeland Systems will defend its intellectual property against all infringers to the full extent the law allows.”
