NeoMedia Technologies recently announced its plans to bring a patent infringement lawsuit against SpyderLynk, due to the company's allegedly illegal use of mobile barcode resolution technology.

SpyderLynk is facing litigation related to U.S. Patent Nos. 6,199,048 and 8,131,597, and NeoMedia is looking to recover damages from SpyderLynk and to stop SpyderLynk from using its technology. 

"Protecting our products and services and defending our patent portfolio represent key responsibilities and commitments to our company and all of its stakeholders," said Laura Marriott, CEO of NeoMedia Technologies. "We have invested an extraordinary amount of resources in this area of our business and we will fight hard to defend our portfolio."

Companies such as NeoMedia should always consider purchasing professional liability insurance with intellectual property coverage, due to the current frequency of technology patent lawsuits.

NeoMedia was also recently in the news for upgrading ins NeoReader barcode scanning software, which is available for Apple iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Phone 7 users.
