ImageX Denied Preliminary Injunction Against iPrint Technologies

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 9, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- iPrint Technologies, inc. (Pink Sheets:IPRT), a leading provider of online and offline marketing and customized branding solutions, today announced that the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington rejected the preliminary injunction requested by ImageX (Nasdaq:IMGX) on August 26, 2002.

"ImageX sought to stop iPrint from using its own, proprietary online print ordering system," said Nickoletta Swank, iPrint's EVP of eCommerce Solutions. "We are pleased that the court ruled in our favor." iPrint continues to believe that ImageX's patent infringement claims are without merit. iPrint has filed several counterclaims against ImageX, including a request that the U.S. District Court declare the patent on which ImageX bases its claims to be invalid.

Founded in 1996, iPrint is one of the original companies in the e-printing space, and the roots of iPrint's proprietary technology are deep. iPrint currently has a number of pending patent applications relating to its technology, and expects those applications to issue in due course.
