Powerline Innovations Files Second Suit against Netgear
Powerline Innovations filed suit against Netgear, alleging the Netgear’s power outlet adapters and Wi-Fi access point products infringe a patent related to powerline communications. Powerline has filed eight prior suits since August 2011 against more than 45 defendants including ASUS, Belkin, Broadcom, Cisco, Comtrend, Logitech, Motorola Mobility, Netgear, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Sharp, STMicro and Western Digital. However, the patent asserted in this suit was not asserted in the previous cases and was issued in April 2012. 10/10, Eastern District of Texas, no judge yet assigned, 6:2012cv00763.
