Omni-ID has filed a complaint in the United States District Court against Xerafy and one of its distributors. The complaint asserts that Xerafy is making, using, offering for sale, selling, and/or importing RFID tags that infringe Omni-ID’s patents.

The company announced the Omni Global Technology Licensing Program (OGTL) in 2012 to provide access to it’s patented technology for one the industry’s first commercially viable on-metal RFID tag product line, enabling further market expansion and new growth opportunities.
Omni-ID has retained national law firm LeClairRyan as legal counsel. The firm will lead the lawsuit against Xerafy and will assist Omni-ID with future actions enforcing and protecting its intellectual property against infringing manufacturers and their distributors.
