01 Communique Announces Issuance of Markman Order



    TORONTO, March 16 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSX: ONE -
www.01com.com), a leading remote access solutions provider, today announced
that the court adjudicating its patent infringement claim against Citrix
Systems Inc. (NSDQ:CTXS) has issued a patent claim construction ruling
adopting the Company's claim construction for 19 of the 20 disputed claim
terms.
    Judge Ann Aldrich, of the United States District Court for the Northern
District of Ohio, issued the claim construction Memorandum and Order in the
Company's patent infringement litigation against Citrix in which the Company
alleges that Citrix infringes the Company's U.S. Patent No. 6,928,479. The
'479 patent covers systems and methods for providing remote access to personal
computers over the Internet, among other things. The alleged infringing
products include, but are not limited to, Citrix's GoToMyPC product. The claim
construction hearing, also known as a Markman hearing, was held on November 2,
2006. The Order establishes the meaning of the patent claims terms in dispute
between the parties. There were originally 20 disputed terms upon which the
parties did not agree. In the Order, Judge Aldrich adopted the construction
asserted by the Company for 19 of the 20 disputed terms. In addition, Judge
Aldrich ordered Citrix to produce financial documents, which it had been
withholding.
    "We are pleased with the Markman ruling," said Andrew Cheung, President
and CEO for 01 Communique. "The Judge's ruling reaffirms our confidence in the
merits of our case as we prepare in earnest for a jury trial."
