SCA Ventures, LLC has added three cases to the campaign that it began last month against Huawei, suing Canon (2:17-cv-00730), Panasonic (2:17-cv-00731), and Ricoh (2:17-cv-00732). The new complaints again assert a single patent generally related to electronic devices with a display that provides a manually controllable cursor and virtual keyboard. Infringement allegations against these new defendants focus on video and/or still cameras with LCD control interfaces, while SCA Ventures accused Huawei of infringement through the provision of phones with text editing features responsive to a user through the touchscreen. The patent-in-suit was previously asserted in a campaign litigated by an affiliate of Daniel F. Perez.
SCA Ventures, LLC, an affiliate of IP Valuation Partners LLC (IPVal), has filed suit against Huawei (2:17-cv-00684), asserting a patent previously seen in litigation brought by Numic Technology, LLC, an affiliate of Daniel F. Perez. Huawei is accused of infringement through the manufacture and sale of phones with text editing features responsive to a user through the touchscreen (e.g., locating a cursor by touch, selecting text for editing, pulling up a virtual keyboard, etc.). Defendants in the Numic Technology campaign, which concerned seven other patents not now at issue, included BLU Products, Ecom Instruments, Nikon, Sonim Technologies, TCT (TCT Mobile), and ZTE.
