  • Furukawa vs. Corning Suit Dismissed
Nov 2004
CORNING, N.Y., Nov. 1 -- Corning Inc. confirmed that a suit filed by Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd. against Corning Cable Systems International Corp., a subsidiary of Corning, was dismissed Friday by a Japanese court.

Furukawa had claimed that optical fiber cables sold by Corning Cable Systems infringed a Japanese patent, which expired earlier this year, held by Furukawa for an optical fiber ribbon cable design. Corning said its products never used the design covered in the patent.

Corning said the court found that Corning Cable System’s products did not infringe Furukawa’s patent and dismissed the claim on that basis.
