Two Technologies Takes Legal Action Against Datalogic
Horsham, Pa, September 20 ─ Two Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of customizable, rugged handheld computer and terminal products, filed a complaint on August 10, 2007, against Datalogic S.p.A., Datalogic Automation, Inc. and Escort Memory Systems in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Federal Court situated in Philadelphia, asserting trademark nfringement. The complaint contends that Datalogic's use of the trademark "Jet" for its line of industrial PDAs constitutes trademark infringement and unfair competition.
Two Technologies uses the trademark JETT for its line of rugged handheld computers since 2003. The mark JETT is attached to an entire product line of rugged computers, as well as multiple associated peripherals. The United States Patent and Trademark Office issued Two Technologies a registration for its JETT mark.
"In good faith, Two Technologies' legal counsel notified Datalogic of confusion occurring internationally in 2005 and requested that they discontinue marketing their line of computers under the name "Jet." Datalogic refused and has continued to market and advertise their line of "Jet" hand helds globally for the last two years," stated Eric Eckstein, Two Technologies' President and COO. "The significant confusion in the marketplace has created major problems for us. At this point we have no choice but to take action to protect our product name and the reputation of our company."
Two Technologies Inc. designs and manufactures customizable, rugged handheld computer and terminal products for global applications. All standard products from Two Technologies are FCC and CE certified, and RoHS compliant.
