2 min read

LONG BEACH, CA (Laserfiche)—September 20, 2011—Compulink Management Center, Inc. dba Laserfiche is pleased to announce that its litigation against SAP America, Inc., SAP AG and SAP Global Marketing over SAP’s use of the company’s Run Smarter® trademark has been resolved.

The terms of the settlement are confidential, but Compulink can disclose that the Parties settled the Action amicably and that the settlement involved a license of Compulink’s trademark for “Run Smarter.”

Laserfiche is the owner of United States Trademark and Service Mark Registration No. 3,085,357 for Run Smarter® and is also the owner of registrations for “Run Smarter” in other countries. Laserfiche’s complaint against SAP contended that SAP’s use of “Run Smarter” infringed Laserfiche’s registered Run Smarter® trademark and service mark and was an unauthorized and unlicensed use.

Laserfiche is a leading provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software. The federally registered Run Smarter® trademark has been the centerpiece of Laserfiche marketing campaigns since 2004. It is a strong trademark and service mark and a valuable asset of Laserfiche.

The lawsuit was filed by Laserfiche in the United States District Court in Los Angeles, CV10-7843-JFW, on October 25, 2010. It was scheduled to go to trial today.
