Generally press releases published by companies are about the publishing company filing suit against others infringing their IP, or a court ruling in their favour. In a weird development, Camtek, an Israeli wafer imaging and processing company has announced that the district court of Minnesota has entered a summary judgment finding that certain previous models of Camtek’s Falcon systems were capable of infringing upon two claims of a Rudolph patent in the United States.

See here  for more details. Perhaps not surprisingly, Camtek’s shares dropped over 3% on the day.
