General Patent Corporation’s Advanced Video Technologies LLC (AVT) filed its first suits since 2012, naming BlackBerry, HTC, and Motorola Mobility as defendants. The new suits are part of AVT’s sole litigation campaign, begun in 2004. AVT has previously sued these three defendants in this same campaign.
