Exploration Products Willfully Sold Globally in Violation of FairfieldNodal Intellectual Property
SUGAR LAND, Texas (Oct. 23, 2014) – FairfieldNodal, a leading designer and manufacturer of seismic surveying and exploration systems, recently filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Wireless Seismic Inc. in the U.S. Eastern District Court in Texas, claiming that Wireless Seismic is selling products that violate four Fairfield Nodal patents for transmitting seismic data . Another patent infringement lawsuit was also filed this week against Wireless Seismic and its Chinese distributor for the violation of its patent in a court in the People’s Republic of China. FairfieldNodal has full faith in the Chinese court on protecting FairfieldNodal’s IP rights in accordance with the PRC laws.
