01 Communique Provides an update on its Patent Litigation with Citrix Systems Inc.



    TORONTO, March 13 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSX:ONE) today
announced that the judge in its patent infringement case against Citrix
(NSDQ:CTXS) has issued a memorandum and order staying the case pending
re-examination of the patent underlying our claims. The court vacated all
scheduled hearings and conferences and will hold all pending motions in
abeyance, with the exception of 01 Communique's motion to show cause.
    "We are prepared to proceed with the re-examination process with the
United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The technology underlying
our patent is very unique and has already gone through a vigorous prosecution
process prior to the granting of the patent," said Andrew Cheung President and
CEO for 01 Communique. "We expect the re-examination to be successful and plan
to continue the process to trial and if necessary any appeal by Citrix. We
view this as another procedural tactic by Citrix that buys them some
additional time in order to delay the trial. We are committed to staying the
course on this infringement action against Citrix and we do not believe that
their delay tactics will ultimately be successful. We believe we have a strong
case and will continue to aggressively pursue this litigation on behalf of our
shareholders."

    Pursuant to the patent infringement case 01 Communique is seeking:

    
    1. Past damages, which will continue to accumulate throughout the period
       of re-examination.
    2. Willful infringement, which could result in up to a trebling of past
       damages.
    3. An injunction for Citrix's GoToMyPC product offering.
    

    01 Communique will continue to evaluate its options with respect to the
Court's order.
    As the re-examination process continues we will continue to build our
business based on our remote wake up and access technology with new products
that will help to enable the virtualization of the desktop PC. Virtualization
of the desktop PC is expected to be the next major growth area in the
evolution of the PC. Our technology bodes well for this market.
