JURY REACHES VERDICT IN NPF v. SMART PARTS PATENT CASE

A four-day jury trial on NPF's allegations of patent infringement against Smart Parts concluded Thursday, December 9, 2004 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin. The jury found claim 10 of U.S. Patent No. 6,311,682 (the '682 patent) invalid for obviousness. Claims 21 and 39 of U.S. Patent No. 6,615,814 (the '814 patent) were not found to be invalid for obviousness. All three claims had previously been found to be infringed in a November 17, 2004 Memorandum and Order. Several post-trial issues remain pending and Smart Parts is preserving all of its legal rights.

Damages in the amount of $109,070 were awarded to NPF as a reasonable royalty for Smart Parts' infringement and an injunction prohibiting Smart Parts from future infringement of claims 21 and 39 of the '814 patent was entered following the jury verdict on damages.
_______________

This does NOT affect Smart Parts' ability to market, sell, and distribute its Shocker, Impulse, and Nerve paintball guns and will not detrimentally affect the quality or performance of its markers in any way.
_______________

Smart Parts has already taken all the necessary steps to comply with the terms of the injunction. Smart Parts' dealers and distributors therefore do not need take any action with respect to their continued sales of Smart Parts' products. The injunction does not apply to markers sold by Smart Parts before December 9, 2004.

Any dealer inquiries should be directed to Smart Parts at (724) 539-2660.

Wait, wouldn't Smart Parts owe money to the companies it sued because it didn't have the right to sue them? Or was that a different patent?

Dang, ****'in great news turned into just regular good news. Oh well, SP gets a taste of their own ****.

What's i'm wondering is, what's to become of the companies that made settlements with SP before WDP stepped in ? Like NPS, Dye, ICD, AKA, etc ?

They are locked out from being re-programmed. Nothing you nor I can tell. It is really no big deal to be honest.... that is why I do not understand why everyone is freakin out.

Those people jumped on the bandwagon, and only about 10% of that group has any idea what they're talking about.

Bandwagoning is just the excause pro-SP people use. Face it, the information is out there, people know what's going on and they have the right reasons for their opinions.

So if SP boards can't be programmed, does that mean Nerve's can no longer have their "special" rebound feature? If it was on there still, then there'd be no way to turn it off deeming them illegal for most places.

the boards will remain the same.
They will still have valve dwell, recharge rate, rebound. You will not be albe to notice the change we made... period.

No, bandwagoning exists because people are not informed. There are a certain group of people, who represent their opinion, and back it up with facts. I do realize that SP has bad business practices, but I do however have the self control not to ***** about it to people I have never met.
Face it, people aren't as informed as you'd like to think.
