ParkerVision, Inc. has continued the 2020 expansion of its long-running wireless communications campaign, this past week adding Western District of Texas suits against Melco Holdings (Buffalo) (6:20-cv-01009) and ZyXEL Communications (6:20-cv-01010). The publicly traded NPE targets the provision of Wi-Fi routers incorporating wireless networking modules with certain chips from MediaTek and Realtek. These latest cases follow earlier 2020 suits filed separately against Hisense, Intel, and TCL Technology, all as ParkerVision continues litigating a 2014 case in the Middle District of Florida against Qualcomm and its customer HTC, in light of which additional suits, against Apple and LG Electronics (LGE) have been stayed.
Backed by litigation funder Brickell Key and undeterred by a litigation storm in multiple districts, publicly traded ParkerVision, Inc. has sued Hisense (6:20-cv-00870) in the Western District of Texas over the provision of Sharp-branded TVs, with the incorporation of certain Wi-Fi chips provided by MediaTek and Realtek at issue. Core in this campaign is a 2014 case, active in the Middle District of Florida before Judge Paul G. Byron, against Qualcomm and its customer HTC, in light of which suits against Apple (also in the Middle District of Florida) and LG Electronics (LGE) (in the District of New Jersey) have been stayed. It does not stop there, however; 2020 cases against Intel (two in the Western District of Texas) and TCL (one in the Central District of California) continue, albeit in early stages.
