ADT files suits alleging logo infringement

ADT announced this week that it has filed lawsuits against three companies that were alleged to have infringed upon ADT's blue octagon logo. Those companies were Advanced Design Technologies out of Boca Raton, Fla.; Moore Protection Home Security out of Redondo Beach, Calif.; and IC Realtime from Pompano Beach, Fla. ADT said it had received permanent injunctions against the three firms which would prevent them from using the company's blue octagon mark.

ADT has recently signed a contract for yard signs for all ADT and Broadview legacy customers. A Dallas company is said to have received the contract and will be printing some 8,000 signs per day. Details of the contract are expected to be announced next week.
