New NPE Targets Acer and ASUS
Domaine Associates [NPE] and Florida Atlantic University Research Corporation filed two separate suits against Acer and ASUS, alleging that the defendants’ computer monitors and other products enabled to scale or convert video infringe a patent related to an adaptive scan conversion. These are the first patent two infringement suits initiated by Domaine and Florida Atlantic. According to the complaint, Florida Atlantic works with external sponsors to arrange royalty-generating licenses. The complaints identify Domaine as the exclusive licensee of the patent-in-suit. 6/28, Southern District of Florida, assigned to Judge Kenneth A. Marra, 9:2012cv80694, 9:2012cv80697.
