E-Watch launched a new campaign, asserting two patents against Apple, BlackBerry, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Samsung, Sony, and ZTE. The patents-in-suit relate to mobile devices for capturing, storing, converting, compressing, and transmitting images (7,365,871; 7,643,168). The complaints accuse defendants’ mobile phones with built-in cameras of infringing the asserted patents. E-Watch has filed more than two dozen cases since it began litigating patents in 2005, but this is the first time these two patents have been asserted in litigation. Both patents-in-suit were acquired from The Telesis Group in 2005. 12/9, Eastern District of Texas, 2:13cv01061, 2:13cv01062, 2:13cv01063, 2:13cv01064, 12/10, Eastern District of Texas, 2:13cv01071, 2:13cv01073, 2:13cv01077, 2:13cv01078
