CeeColor Sues Luxand
- December 10, 2012
CeeColor Industries filed suit against Luxand, alleging that Luxand’s Blink! Pro software security product infringes two patents related to using webcams, ID badge detectors, and biometric readers to sense activity in the vicinity of a computer, record data and images during computer use, and lock the computer when the user walks away. CeeColor has filed over 10 prior suits since March 2012 against more than 10 defendants including Cerner, Gemalto, Healthcast, Imprivata, Irisguard, Key Source International, and Oculis Labs. Alan Kipust is the named inventor on the patents-in-suit, which he assigned to Sitka Spruce Security in September 2010. According to the complaint, CeeColor is the exclusive licensee of the patent-in-suit. The ‘610 patent-in-suit was previously litigated in November 2010 by Gilco Babylon against ASUS, Centrinet, Goldkey Security, SCM Microsystems, Sensible Vision, Wyse Technology and TX Systems. ASUS, Centrinet, Goldkey Security, SCM Microsystems, Sensible Vision and Wyse Technology were dismissed without prejudice in August 2011. 11/30, Eastern District of Virginia, assigned to Judge Mark S. Davis and referred to Magistrate Judge Douglas E. Miller, 2:2012cv00650.
