New York, NY (PRWeb) -- February 27 2007 -- Travel Sentry, Inc. ( travelsentry.org ), a company in the luggage lock business, has been sued for patent infringement by the inventor of US Patents 7,021,537 and 7,036,728.

This patent infringement claim comes after Travel Sentry filed a lawsuit in Federal Court in New Hampshire seeking to squash inventor's rights. Travel Sentry's claim was thrown out of Federal Court in New Hampshire. They have since re-filed in New York.

TSA luggage locks allow air travelers to lock their checked bags while enabling Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Officers to unlock and inspect them, rather than clip travelers' luggage locks during a mandatory security inspection.

"I filed this patent infringement case for a very simple reason. The TSA Lock technology covered by US Patents 7,021,537 and 7,036,728 is being knowingly and unfairly exploited," said David Tropp, the inventor of these patents.

Through his company, Safe Skies LLC, Mr. Tropp practices his innovation by making his patented TSA Lock system available to the traveling public.

Mr. Tropp, an entrepreneur in his mid-twenties, developed an innovative system for making airline luggage inspection secure while accommodating the needs of the traveler. The United States Patent and Trademark Office recognized Mr. Tropp's innovation and issued two patents; one patent on April 4, 2006, and the other patent on May 2, 2006.

Tropp is seeking injunctive relief enjoining Travel Sentry and those working with them from infringing US Patents 7,021,537 and 7,036,728.

This patent infringement lawsuit will be decided by jury trial in The United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn, NY (Case # 1:06-CV-06415).
