Volfoni 3D Contests the Validity of RealD's Utility Model Patent in Russia

Volfoni, the global 3D technology solutions leader and creator of the groundbreaking 3D cinema system, SmartCrystal™ Diamond, confirmed today that it will vigorously challenge RealD's Utility Model (UM) patent in Russia. Volfoni has started the process to invalidate RealD’s UM patent at the Chamber for Patent Disputes of the Russian Patent Office. Volfoni strongly believes RealD's Russian UM patent does not bring any innovation to 3D technology, nor to any of Volfoni's internationally filed patent applications.

Volfoni has concluded that RealD's UM patent filed in Russia is not valid because of its blatant lack of novelty. UM patent applications in Russia do not undergo substantive examination in the Russian Patent Office, and are only examined for compliance with formal requirements. Volfoni asserts that RealD’s Russian UM patent is a wrongful attempt to suppress competition in the manufacture and sale of 3D cinema projection systems in Russia, and specifically Volfoni’s innovative and superior SmartCrystal™ Diamond. Accordingly, Volfoni demands further investigation and examination by the Russian Patent Office.

“Volfoni respects innovation and competition in the marketplace. RealD continues to try to threaten our clients and partners around the world, without any legitimate legal grounds. Any attempt by RealD to mis-use its Russian UM patent against Volfoni's products or to intimidate our clients and partners will not be tolerated. We stand with our customers and behind our products” said Thierry Henkinet, President, Volfoni Group.

Volfoni filed and has been granted numerous innovation patent applications in France for its 3D technologies and these patents have been filed around the world. Most recently, Volfoni’s unique “triple beam” technology that is used in its premier 3D cinema system SmartCrystal™ Diamond was granted a Chinese patent by the State Intellectual Property Office in China.
