Innovative Display Technologies (IDT) continues to find new targets for its campaign asserting patents related to LCD components. Its newest suit is against Google and asserts eight of the 19 patents that have been used in the campaign (5,613,751, 6,755,547, 7,300,194, 7,384,177, 7,404,660, 7,434,974, 7,537,370, 8,215,816). The campaign by the Acacia subsidiary has been targeting devices with a LCD screen and in this filing Google’s tablets and smartphones are the accused products. Almost 30 cases have been filed since IDT began asserting these patents in litigation almost a year ago. The asserted patents originated with Solid State Opto and were transferred to Rambus in 2009, then assigned to Acacia in March 2013. At this point the campaign has targeted most major smartphone and tablet makers, including Apple, Acer, Blackberry, Dell, HP, LG, Nokia, and Sony. 4/8, Eastern District of Texas, 2:14cv00302
