AgJunction Inc., the Autosteering Company ("AgJunction" or the "Company"), has filed a patent infringement lawsuit through its wholly owned U.S. subsidiaries in the Northern District of Georgia against Kubota Corporation and several of its subsidiaries ("Kubota"). The lawsuit alleges that Kubota products violate three AgJunction patents related to automated machine control and implement steering. 
 
"AgJunction has one of the most comprehensive steering and machine control IP portfolios in the industry," said Bob Barjesteh, vice president of IP and general counsel of AgJunction. "These assets are vital to hands-free steering and machine control functions and are critical components of our corporate strategy. After years of attempting to negotiate a license with Kubota and its suppliers, we are left with no choice but to assert our patents in court." 
 
The lawsuit seeks monetary damages and an injunction to prevent Kubota from selling in the U.S. any products infringing AgJunction's patented technology. Specifically named in the lawsuit are Kubota's M7 Series tractors and their newer updated models with autosteer components. 
 
AgJunction is committed to bringing new technologies and products to the market, along with protecting its products and partners by continuing to enforce its rights against unlicensed use.
