Tyco Files Suit Against United Kingdom Security Tag Company Catalyst 
Lawsuit Involves Alleged Infringement of Sensormatic Acousto-Magnetic
(AM) Anti-Theft Tags 
BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 --  Tyco Retail Solutions
(www.tycoretailsolutions.com), a leading global provider of retail
performance and security solutions, announces today that it has filed
a lawsuit in the United Kingdom against Algreta Solutions Ltd t/a
Catalyst, an independent supplier of security tags to retailers, for
patent infringement, infringement of Community trademark and passing
off in connection with the sale of Electronic Article Surveillance
(EAS) hard tags.  
After analyzing samples of hard tag sourced from Catalyst, Tyco filed
suit in the United Kingdom asserting that the hard tag, amongst other
things, infringes a Sensormatic patent on anti-theft SuperTag II
Acousto-Magnetic (AM) technology.  
"Tyco's SuperTag is recognized as the premier EAS hard tag the
world's leading retailers have come to trust over the years to help
reduce theft and improve profitability," said Nancy Chisholm, vice
president and general manager, Tyco Retail Solutions. "SuperTag II
was designed with a unique set of attributes. It's durable and not
easily defeated by common shoplifting tools, offering retailers the
freedom and confidence to open merchandise a wide variety of items.
As a result of our extensive investment in research and development,
we will rigorously defend this important technology innovation."
