Former Nokia Patents Asserted in New Suits Against LG Electronics
- September 29, 2014
Core Wireless Licensing Inc. repeated its pattern of filing multiple cases against a single defendant, suing LG Electronics (LGE) in two suits (2:14-cv-00911; 2:14-cv-00912) asserting separate groups of patents.. The first suit asserts five patents (8,434,020; 8,498,671; 8,713,476; 8,792,398; 7,072,667; 5,907,823) while the other asserts 13 patents (5,946,634; 6,266,321; 6,477,151; 6,633,536; 6,978,143; 7,383,022; 7,529,271; 7,599,664; 7,782,818; 7,804,850; 8,165,049; RE44,828), all of which relate to mobile communication and originated with Nokia. Core Wireless, a subsidiary of Conversant Intellectual Property Management, Inc. (formerly MOSAID Technologies), acquired the asserted patents from Nokia in August 2011 as part of a larger portfolio of 1,200 patents. Both suits accuse LGE’s mobile devices, including cell phones and tablets, of infringing the patents-in-suit.
