Verkada Denies Every Motorola ITC Allegation, Counters Avigilon "Out-of-Date"

By Isabella Cheng, Published Oct 01, 2021, 09:20am EDT

Verkada has responded to Motorola/Avigilon's ITC complaint, denying that Verkada infringes on the 3 Avigilon patents and arguing that the patents should be invalidated. Moreover, Verkada says this ITC complaint shows how Motorola "fails to understand" Verkada's "innovative technology."
