Velocys Wins Injunction Against CompactGTL
Oct 3 14
Velocys plc announced that the UK High Court has ordered an immediate injunction restraining CompactGTL's infringing activities and payment of approx. £1.4 million to Velocys. Following the UK High Court's ruling upholding the Velocys patents in suit and judging CompactGTL to be infringing them both, the Court has now ordered an immediate injunction restraining CompactGTL from infringing the patents or enabling, procuring, or assisting any third party to infringe the patents. In addition to being used at its Wilton plant in the UK, CompactGTL confirmed to the Court that the same infringing technology was the subject of its activities with Petrobras. The Court also ordered CompactGTL to pay approx. £1.4 million to Velocys for its legal costs to date. The case is continuing, with determination of damages to Velocys expected after receipt of additional disclosures from CompactGTL regarding its activities.
Velocys Wins Patent Case against CompactGTL
Sep 22 14
Velocys plc announced that the UK High Court has ruled in its favour in the patent infringement case it brought against CompactGTL Ltd. The case, filed by Velocys in March 2013, concerns infringement by CompactGTL in relation to its smaller scale Fischer-Tropsch (FT) technology. (FT is regarded as the core process in any gas-to-liquids plant). The judgment upheld the validity of the two patents in suit (known as '508 and '509), and found CompactGTL to be infringing both patents - six separate patent claims in total - based on CompactGTL's sworn statements to the court concerning their technology and its intended use. Velocys has a very substantial patent portfolio comprising more than 900 patents, covering a broad range of countries, which protects key inventions relevant to smaller scale GTL. The Company also holds a significant inventory of trade-secrets which it has gained through years of development and practice. Moreover, Velocys actively ensures it maintains strict freedom to operate for its own business. Equivalents of the two patents in this case have also been approved in numerous other jurisdictions around the world, including places where smaller scale GTL might be deployed, such as the United States and Canada, and countries where FT reactors and other associated equipment might be manufactured, such as Japan and South Korea. A judgement hearing has been set for 2nd October to deal with issues arising out of this decision, including relief from infringement, damages to Velocys, and reimbursement of Velocys' legal costs.
