EcoFasten Solar Invalidates D Three Enterprises Patents in Colorado District Court

Anyone who does business with EcoFasten Solar, in any capacity, knows that we pride ourselves on our innovative spirit and our proactive approach to anticipating gaps in the marketplace by engineering solutions that fill those gaps.

Just last week we learned that the District Court of Colorado granted our motion for summary judgement invalidating all patent claims asserted against us by D Three Enterprises. The Court’s order brings the dispute to a close, and for all of us at EcoFasten Solar, this is a long-deserved victory.

The action against us was filed a couple of summers ago, back in June of 2015. The action asserted claims against 2 of our patents. From the beginning, we’ve maintained that the claims were without merit and that the D Three Patents were invalid. In its recent order granting EcoFasten’s motion, the Court found that EcoFasten’s prior commercial activities came before to the effective filing dates of each of D Three’s asserted patents, making each of their claims invalid.

We have a very strong patent portfolio, and are, and will continue to, aggressively defend those patents by pursuing those companies that infringe.

The founder and President of EcoFasten Solar, Brian Stearns, says, “This finding by the Colorado Court confirms our long held belief that D Three’s claims were baseless.  EcoFasten Solar has a long, proud tradition of innovation. We also work diligently to respect the patent rights of others.  This action has also caused us to look at our own patent rights and move forward with actions to defend the innovation we have worked so hard to create.”
