Barcode Scanner Expert with Optics Knowledge
A barcode scanner expert was sought for a patent infringement case between barcode scanning equipment manufacturers. Claimants alleged that defendant's products utilized proprietary technology gained via a standing cross licensing agreement that covered handheld barcode scanning equipment, including laser scanners and CCD readers. The defendant claimed changes in the product meant the cross licensing agreement no longer applied.
