FastVDO LLC launched its second litigation campaign with suits against Apple, AT&T, Dell, Huawei, LGE, NEC, Nokia, Samsung, and ZTE. A single patent is asserted in the suits, concerning error resilient data encoding through lossless compression (5,850,482). The patent-in-suit was developed by McDonnell Douglas Corporation, and according to the complaints, FastVDO is the current owner by assignment. FastVDO is accusing defendants’ products that comply with Adaptive Multi-rate (AMR) and Adaptive Multi-rate, Wide-band (AMR-WB) protocols, including smartphones and tablets, of infringing the ‘482 patent.
