Diebold Nixdorf's Prior Success Against Hyosung Claims Upheld

17 July 2017
Company will appeal ITC ruling on single patent; continues to vigorously protect its intellectual property in federal court

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD) today announced that the International Trade Commission (ITC) has upheld a preliminary ruling on a patent infringement claim by Nautilus Hyosung related to automated teller machines (ATMs).  In the ruling, Diebold Nixdorf defeated three of four retaliatory patent infringement claims brought by the Korea-based company. On the fourth claim, the ITC found a technical violation of a Hyosung U.S. patent involving legacy Wincor technology.

Diebold Nixdorf disagrees with the decision as it relates to the one technical violation involving Wincor technology and will appeal.  However, this ruling has no bearing on existing products in the market, and Diebold Nixdorf has developed a new and improved version of the product that is not affected by this patent which will be used in future sales.    

Hyosung, a Korean corporation which does not manufacture its ATMs in the United States, filed these recent claims in response to Diebold Nixdorf's patent infringement case against it.  In that case, the ITC has already found that Hyosung infringes two Diebold patents and concluded that there is "strong circumstantial evidence that Hyosung had knowledge of Diebold's patented technology, copied it, and encouraged its customers to use it in an infringing way." Diebold Nixdorf is headquartered in the United States with a history in the country spanning nearly 160 years.  The company has been manufacturing ATMs domestically for more than 40 years.

After appeal, these intellectual property disputes will move to federal district court, where each company will have a U.S. jury decide whether infringement occurred and what damages are owed.

Diebold Nixdorf is steadfastly committed to innovation and will pursue all available avenues to protect its intellectual property.
