Elite Gaming Tech LLC (d/b/a Elite Gaming Technology, LLC) has added an Eastern District of Texas case against MediaTek (2:21-cv-00098) to its sole litigation campaign, begun in February 2020. The Alpha Alpha Intellectual Partners LLC (AAIP) NPE asserts a single patent, generally related to bridge driver communications, with MediaTek accused of infringement through the provision of Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) that contain a bridge driver, including the MT6XXX, MT7XXX, MT8XXX, and Helios-series SoCs, as well as related software. The patent is among seven, each received from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV), that Elite Gaming Tech has asserted across its previous complaints, filed against ASUSTek, Giga-Byte Technology, Micro-Star, and Pegatron (ASRock).
Longhorn HD LLC has launched a third litigation campaign, suing Samsung (2:20-cv-00350) in the Eastern District of Texas over a single patent, acquired from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) and generally related to an “information backup system”. The NPE targets Samsung over the provision of smartphones that support Smart Switch, a technology for “seamlessly” upgrading from one model to another. Concurrently, Longhorn HD has added three new defendants to its existing network security campaign, hitting Mitel Networks (Mitel SoftwareTechnologies) (2:20-cv-00350), NetScout Systems (2:20-cv-00349),and Trend Micro (2:20-cv-00348), also in East Texas, over a variety of networking hardware and software products.
