LONGMONT, Colo., Sept. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage solutions, stated that the Company plans to defend itself against Crossroads Systems, Inc.'s breach of contract and patent infringement claims, which were filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas on September 11, 2013.

"Dot Hill disputes Crossroads' claims, which arise out of Crossroads' mistaken demands for patent royalties on licensed products for which royalty obligations have been met, as well as demands for royalties on products that are outside the scope of Crossroads' licensed patents," stated Dana Kammersgard, president and chief executive officer, Dot Hill Systems. "Dot Hill respects intellectual property rights and values the technology rights we license from our technology partners. We regret that Crossroads elected to initiate a lawsuit instead of working with us amicably to resolve its questions about royalty payments. We look forward to asserting our rights through the legal process."
