Samsung Is Newest Mobile Manufacturer Targeted in Acacia Sub’s Campaign
- October 8, 2014
After suing the majority of mobile device manufacturers in June 2014, Orlando Communications is now targeting Samsung. The four suits accuse Samsung, along with a wireless carrier, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon, of infringing two patents asserted in Orlando’s litigation. The Acacia Research subsidiary has asserted the patents-in-suit in each of its 19 cases, and the asserted patents relate to managing and transferring data over a communication system (5,687,196, 6,009,553). Samsung’s handsets are accused of infringing the patents-in-suit; the wireless carriers are accused of selling the infringing handsets to customers in their service networks.
