Charter Communications (Spectrum Mobile) (1:21-cv-01371) and UVNV (Mint Mobile) (1:21-cv-01370) are the latest defendants to be added to the 5G devices campaign of Decatur Licensing LLC, an apparent IP Edge LLC plaintiff. Decatur asserts a single former Huawei patent generally related to “obtaining radio access network information”, targeting in these new complaints the provision of 5G smartphones from Lenovo (Motorola Mobility). Last week also saw the dismissal of separate cases against Rohde & Schwartz and Sony from the campaign, which has been litigated in typical IP Edge fashion.
IP Edge LLC plaintiff Decatur Licensing LLC has resumed litigation targeting the provision of various devices with 5G support, after what appears to have been a false start earlier this year. The NPE has sued Cisco (Linksys) (1:21-cv-00745), Digi International (1:21-cv-00743), HTC (2:21-cv-00712), Oceus Networks (1:21-cv-00744), and Sony (1:21-cv-04691) over a single former Huawei patent generally related to “obtaining radio access network information”. That patent’s final three digits are 476; in January 2021, Decatur Licensing filed separate suits against ASUSTek, Lenovo (Motorola Mobility), LG Electronics (LGE), and Samsung over a Kyocera patent ending in 467—suits that were all dismissed without prejudice in early March.
