GREENVALE, NY -- Apple Industries Inc. reported that accusations against the firm made by a competing photobooth manufacturer have no merit. Digital Centre of Barcelona, Spain, recently publicized by email that it's involved in litigation with Apple in the New York State Supreme Court "in order to protect the integrity of DC products."

Apple explained that the lawsuit began in 2010 and a trial court in 2011 dismissed most of DC's pleaded claims.

"Apple Industries believes that the remaining claims are without merit and will continue to vigorously defend against them," said Apple president Warren Friss. "This lawsuit will have no impact whatsoever on Apple's business or operations."

In a separate communication, Digital Centre warned that it plans to prosecute violators of its intellectual property, patents and designs.

Founded in 1997, Digital Centre launched its first photobooth, Dr. Face, the same year, and subsequently a dozen or so more. Apple, which manufactures Face Place automatic photo machines, at one time represented DC products in the U.S.
