e.Digital Corporation has filed its first lawsuits since January of this year. The publicly traded NPE’s new cases assert two patents (9,002,331; 9,178,983) against each of Netatmo (3:16-cv-05212), NETGEAR (3:16-cv-05211), and Y-Cam Solutions (3:16-cv-05215) while adding two more patents (8,311,522; 8,311,524) in the case against Netgear. The patents-in-suit generally relate to collecting information from one or more remote sensors to identify events requiring further attention, and the defendants networked cameras and remote monitoring systems are at issue in the campaign. e.Digital has both reopened stayed district court cases and filed these new ones in light of a settlement earlier this summer with Alphabet, ending prior district court cases against Dropcam and Nest Labs, as well as inter partes reviews (IPRs) brought by Google and its subsidiaries of six of the eight patents-in-campaign.
Acer, Apacer Technology, Cactus Technologies, Greenliant Systems, Lenovo, and Spansion are the most recent defendants added to e.Digital Corporation’s ongoing litigation campaign. The complaints accuse defendants’ tablets and PCs of infringing a single patent related to a removable and interchangeable flash memory that can be used in a handheld device (5,839,108). e.Digital has asserted the patent-in-suit in the majority of its lawsuits. The litigation campaign targets devices that incorporate flash memory storage, including cameras, computers, media players, mobile phones, and tablets.
