A trailblazer in flash memory sector technology, Netac Technology also has a reputation as an IP pioneer: it is thought to be the first Chinese company to enforce its patent rights overseas, suing PNY Technologies in the Eastern District of Texas in an infringement dispute that eventually settled out of court. The case was characteristic of Netac’s uncompromising approach to IP protection, which has successfully targeted both local and foreign competitors. The action has secured it new royalty streams from licensing agreements brokered with companies such as Kingston, PNY Technologies and Toshiba.
