Surveillance End Users Getting Sued by Hawk

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Aug 08, 2013

Last year, Avigilon sued Hawk Technology Systems while Hawk sued Vicon and BJ Wholesale Club plus countersued Avigilon for patent infringement. Now Hawk says it will shift its strategy from targeting manufacturers to targeting end users. We interviewed Barry Schwab, the Chief Technology Officer and President of Hawk to understand their patents, approach and intentions.

Our report answers these questions:

  • Why is Hawk targeting end users?
  • What does Hawk's patents cover?
  • What happened to the initial suits against Avigilon, Vicon and BJ's?
  • What type of licensing agreements is Hawk looking for?
  • How and when did Hawk invent this?
  • Who may be violating Hawk's patents?
  • What will happen to manufacturers and end users?
