Statement by Chris Diorio RE: Impinj Patent-Infringement Lawsuit Against NXP
June 6, 2019 - Seattle, WA
This statement is attributable to Chris Diorio, Impinj Founder & CEO.
"For the past 15 years, Impinj has pioneered key advancements in RAIN RFID, earning more than 250 issued and allowed patents by virtue of our investment, dedication and sheer hard work. As CEO, I take my responsibility to protect Impinj’s inventions seriously. Consequently, we cannot remain silent while NXP, many times our size and with many times our resources, copies our patented inventions. Nor can we remain silent after they rebuff, for two years, our attempts to meet with them to resolve the issue outside the courts. The patent-infringement lawsuit we filed today, citing 26 patents that NXP's UCODE products infringe, reaffirms the importance of fair and lawful competition in our market."
