Chengdu Xingraphics a developer and manufacturer of thermal printing plates and related chemistry, announced today that The Hague District Court issued a second favorable ruling in the company's patent infringement lawsuit with Agfa Graphics BV. In 2008, Agfa started legal proceedings against Xingraphics in the Netherlands. Agfa claimed an injunction against Xingraphics arguing that the FIT and FIT Xtra plates infringe a European Patent EP 823 327, which relates to a 'method for making positive photosensitive lithographic printing plates', a patent that Agfa acquired through the acquisition of Lastra in October of 2004. In its judgment of 22 July 2009, the District Court in The Hague dismissed the claim by Agfa. The District Court decided that Agfa had not provided convincing evidence that the FIT and FIT Xtra plates infringed EP 823 327.
