Plaintiff Valmont claims to own the rights to U.S. Patent No. 7,466,286 issued Dec. 16, 2008, for a Folding Frame for Mounting an Antenna.
Valmont alleges defendants Eupen Cable, Nello Inc. and Structural Components LLC are infringing the '286 Patent by making, using, selling or distributing antenna mounts covered by the patent.
According to the complaint, Eupen received actual notice of the patent application that was later issued as the '286 Patent through correspondence from Valmont sent Feb. 22, 2007. In addition, Valmont claims it sent Eupen, Nello and Structural Components actual notice of the issued '286 Patent on Dec. 16, 2008.
"Despite this notice, Defendants continued to directly infringe, jointly infringe and indirectly infringe by way of inducing infringement and/or contributing to the infringement of the '286 Patent," the complaint states. "Defendants have therefore willfully infringed the '286 Patent …"
Valmont is seeking a preliminary and permanent injunction enjoining defendants, monetary damages yet to be determined, enhanced damages for willful infringement, costs, expenses, interest, attorneys' fees and other relief to which it is justly entitled.
