IXI Asserting Mobile Tethering Patents Against Apple and Other Mobile Device Makers
- October 8, 2014
IXI IP, along with IXI Mobile (R&D), continued its litigation campaign with a suit against Apple. The suit asserts the same four patents used in the entities’ previous litigation (7,016,648, 7,039,033, 7,295,532, 7,426,398), which relate to remote control of mobile devices and mobile tethering. Apple’s mobile phones, tablets, and smartwatch are accused of infringing the patents-in-suit through the wireless hotspot and remote control features in the products.
