Griffin responds to DLO

Griffin Technology today responded to against the company for alleged infringement of patents related the company's RoadTrip FM Transmitter. Griffin says company that DLO's patent is not valid. "We do not believe that the DLO patent is valid, nor that any of our products infringes the patent." Griffin said that it has sued Netalog in 2004 for a declaration to the same effect. Griffin told MacNN that it has filed motions asking that the case be dismissed on those grounds and that the court is currently considering those motions. Griffin also claims that DLO filed the lawsuit while simultaneously and secretly recruiting one of Griffin's senior managers, which the company says is under separate litigation.

    I never liked DLO!

    DLO has never ranked very high on my favorite company list. As a matter of fact they strike me as kind of underhanded and not a very reputable company. Griffin on the other hand comes across as a much more trust worthy company. I hope Griffin prevails, as I do believe they are the more innovative company.

    - Karma...

    Didn't another smaller iPod accessory company have a problem with these folks? Seems to me these guys are racking up on negative karma points.

    Yes, Your right!

    DLO also threatened MacMice. MacMice has since gone out of business probably in part due to not being able to release a product DLO threatened them over.

    iPod

    To bad the iPod community isn't just Mac users. This company would have a hard time surviving if that were the case. The fact is Mac users don't like those types of companies (we naturally pull for the underdog, it's in our nature)

    out of control

    "Belkin counsel responds to DLO patent lawsuit"

    Ok this company is out of control. Greedy, Selfish company. Someone really needs to put DLO in their place. Hopefully they are starting all these lawsuits because they are running out of money and going out of business soon. I order a ipod case from them once and it was very poor quality. It look like someone cut the openings of the case out with a pair of scissors. I would never give any more of my money to this company.
