Since April, Atlantic IP’s Scramoge Technology Limited has been filing litigation, across two campaigns as a formal matter, over wireless transfer patents from a former LG Innotek portfolio that it acquired this past February. Before November, two defendants—Apple and Samsung—had been sued in each campaign, but now Scramoge has sued Alphabet (Google) (6:21-cv-01138) in its second campaign, ticking the number of overlap defendants up to three. Targeted in the new Western District of Texas complaint with two of those former LG Innotek patents is the Google Pixel Stand wireless charging device.
So far this month, Scramoge Technology Limited has added four cases to its wireless charging litigation, one campaign of which began with an April 2021 suit against Samsung and the other of which began with an August 2021 suit, again against Samsung. The new defendants are Anker (Fantasia Trading d/b/a AnkerDirect) (5:21-cv-01712), Evercel (Mophie) (8:21-cv-01673), and Hon Hai Precision Industry (Belkin) (2:21-cv-08035), with the Atlantic IP Services Limited plaintiff hitting Apple (6:21-cv-01071) for a second time this past week as well. The bulk of the asserted patents across the two campaigns originated with LG Innotek.
