WiLAN Sues Apple over Wireless Communications Patents

  • June 26, 2014

Four days after Apple filed a complaint for declaratory judgment of non-infringement, invalidity, and unenforceability of five WiLAN patents, the NPE sued Apple for alleged infringement of the same group of patents. WiLAN’s complaint accuses Apple’s 4G LTE smartphones, tablets, and components of accusing five wireless communications patents (8,457,145, 8,462,723, 8,462,761, 8,537,757, 8,615,020). WiLAN also alleges that by providing customers with user manuals for 4G products, Apple is inducing others to infringe the asserted patents. WiLAN has sued Apple at least five times since 2007 and is currently involved in multiple ongoing cases with Apple. The patents-in-suit, none of which appear to have been previously litigated, originated with WiLAN. 6/23, California Southern District, 3:14cv01507
