In September, Corydoras Technologies, LLC filed suit in the Eastern District of Texas against retailer Best Buy (2:19-cv-00304) over the sale of a variety of accused products made by others; this past week one of those manufacturers, Amazon (1:19-cv-01095), has asked the Western District of Texas for declaratory judgments of noninfringement of its Fire series tablets, including the Fire HD 10, Fire HD 8, and Fire 7. The patents mentioned in both complaints broadly concern various aspects of a mobile communication device that displays a mirror image of an object taken from a camera facing the direction of the display.
Corydoras Technologies, LLC has shifted gears a bit in its latest lawsuit, tagging retailer Best Buy (2:19-cv-00304) over the sale of a variety of accused products made by Acer, Alphabet (Google), Amazon, BLU Products, Dell (and subsidiary Alienware), HP, Microsoft, or Nokia. The inventor-controlled NPE has previously hit Apple, ASUSTek, Huawei, Lenovo (Motorola Mobility), LG Electronics (LGE), Samsung, Sony, and ZTE, with eight patents from a family of nearly 30 asserted in the campaign. Five of those patents are now at issue against Best Buy, the lot generally related to various aspects of a mobile communications device that displays a mirror image of an object taken from a camera facing the direction of the display. The last case filed in the campaign, in August 2018, ended just this past July with the entry of judgment pursuant to an offer that ASUSTek provided to the court.
