AFL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujikura, has filed lawsuits against two online sellers of fiber-optic equipment. As a wholly owned subsidiary, AFL says, it protects Fujikura's trademarks in North America. The suits against Fiberoptic Hardware LLC and SurplusEQ.com cite trademark infringement as the cause of the suits.

In a release, AFL said the suits are related to the company's line of fusion splicers and that the sale of AFL/Fujikura fusion splicers by both companies is unauthorized.
