LOGMEIN, INC. - S-1/A - 20080307 - LEGAL_PROCEEDINGS
obtain and market or distribute our intellectual property rights or technology or otherwise develop products or services with the same functionality as our services. In addition, U.S. patent filings are intended to provide the holder with a right to exclude others from making, using, selling or importing in the United States the inventions covered by the claims of granted patents. If granted, our patents may be contested, circumvented or invalidated. Moreover, the rights that may be granted in those pending patents may not provide us with proprietary protection or competitive advantages, and we may not be able to prevent third parties from infringing these patents. Therefore, the exact effect of our pending patents, if issued, and the other steps we have taken to protect our intellectual property cannot be predicted with certainty.
 
Although the protection afforded by copyright, trade secret and trademark law, written agreements and common law may provide some advantages, we believe that the following factors help us maintain a competitive advantage:
 
  •  the technological skills of our research and development personnel;
 
  •  frequent enhancements to our services; and
 
  •  continued expansion of our proprietary technology.
 
“LogMeIn” is a registered trademark in the United States and in the European Union. We also hold a number of other trademarks and service marks identifying certain of our services or features of our services. We also have a number of trademark applications pending.
 
Employees
 
As of December 31, 2007, we had 209 full-time employees. None of our employees are represented by labor unions or covered by collective bargaining agreements. We consider our relationship with our employees to be good.
 
Properties
 
Our principal facilities consist of approximately 31,200 square feet of office space located at 500 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts. We also have leased office space in Budapest, Hungary and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We believe our facilities in Woburn, Budapest and Amsterdam are sufficient to support our needs through 2008. To the extent we expand into Asia, additional facilities may be needed.
 
We also lease space in three data centers operated by third parties, of which two are located in the United States and the third is located in Europe.
 
Legal Proceedings
 
We are subject to various legal proceedings and claims, either asserted or unasserted, which arise in the ordinary course of business. While the outcome of these other claims cannot be predicted with certainty, management does not believe that the outcome of any of these other legal matters will have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial statements.
 
In December 2007, we received a letter from Tridia Corporation suggesting that certain of our services may infringe one of its patents. In January 30, 2008, we filed a Request for Ex Parte Reexamination of the subject patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This request is pending. On the same day we filed the request for reexamination, Tridia commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, in which Tridia alleges certain of our services infringe a single United States Patent. Tridia’s complaint seeks damages in an unspecified amount and injunctive relief. We have not yet been served with this complaint. We continue to review and evaluate this claim and currently intend to defend it vigorously, but we are not able to currently estimate the possibility of loss or range of our costs to address or resolve this claim or predict its ultimate outcome.
