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.
Continuing its litigation campaign, e.Digital Corporation filed ten new complaints, including against defendants HP, Microsemi, and SMARTModular Technologies. In recent months, the entity has asserted only a single patent and that same patent is asserted in the new cases (5,839,108). The ‘108 patent concerns a removable/interchangeable flash memory used in a handheld device. Flash memory storage products made or sold by defendants are at issue in the new suits, similar to the other accused products in the campaign.
