March 25, 2005—The battle rages between archrivals Intermec and Symbol as Intermec sued Symbol last week in apparent retaliation for Symbol's suit against Intermec two weeks earlier. According to an announcement posted on Intermec's website, Symbol is unlawfully using Intermec intellectual property in "a substantial part of [its] data capture line." Specifically cited is the following IP:
Symbol not only sued, it also indefinitely halted supplying Intermec with its laser scan engines. The move seemed abrupt, and Miller has sought to assuage possible customer fears that without the Symbol laser scanning technology Intermec will not be able to continue manufacturing some of its key products: "Intermec had been anticipating [Symbol's supply contract cancellation] for some time. Symbol's decision will have no effect on Intermec business operations."
